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 25 years. We have 2 daughters, Madelyn and Lauren. Madelyn lives in Palm Beach, Florida and Lauren is a recent JMU Grad and works in sales at Ashby Ponds. 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 Introduction to Culinary Arts.
