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, since 1995. 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 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 1 and Teacher Cadet 2, Introduction to Early Childhood, and Introduction to Culinary Arts. In addition to my teaching roles, I sponsor 2 clubs - Educators rising and FCCLA. 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!
