My name is Shirell Ashwell. I was born in Alexandria, Virginia and attended Mount Vernon High School. I graduated from Radford University in 1991 with a degree in Education. I have been married to a wonderful man, Michael, for 27 years. We have 2 daughters, Madelyn and Lauren. Madelyn lives in Jupiter, Florida with her husband Seth. Lauren works in sales at Ashby Ponds and lives in Lessburg, VA with her husband Jake. Lauren and Jake added to our family this summer with the addition of our granddaughter, Sage Noel. Our home is not an empty nest - we have a fur baby - Oliver! Oliver is in training as a support and Therapy dog. Look for us around school and events.
In the Family and Consumer Sciences (FACS) department at Potomac Falls, I currently teach Teachers for Tomorrow - Teacher Cadet, Introduction to Early Childhood, and Gourmet Foods. In addition to my teaching roles, I am the CTE Department Chair. I am super excited to work with the young adults at Potomac Falls and instill in them a lifelong love of learning.
Contact me at any time. Looking forward to a great year!
