Big round of applause for Ashley Pirrone!
From Latino Leadership Northwest:
“Ashley Pirrone is the winner of the Latino Leadership Northwest Educators First Prize. We are honored to recognize an educator whose dedication extends beyond the classroom and makes a profound impact on our community.”
Anyone who knows Ashley knows that she is deeply dedicated to ALL students in our building, is bilingual, has advised MEChA AND started a Latin American Literature Course that is part of the College in the High Schools program—just to name a few of the things she has done. She has tirelessly advocated for our Latinx students, and is such a worthy recipient of this award.
