Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my website! My name is Ashlee Nouri, and I teach both English I Pre-AP and English IV at Tivy. I grew up in the Hill Country (Comfort High School, Class of '97), but college, career, and love took me on a 20-year journey through Austin, Fort Worth, Castroville, and Katy. I received my Bachelor's degree from UT Austin in 2001, my first Master's degree in Literature from Texas State in 2005, and most recently, my second Master's in Educational Leadership from Schreiner in the Spring of 2020. This coming year will be my 20th year of teaching, and I can hardly believe I have been in education for two decades; surely I am not that old! :-)
My husband and I finally moved home three years ago, and we are thrilled to be back in the Hill Country! Of course, as a reading teacher, I love to read, but I also love to cook, camp, kayak, run, travel, and play with my fur babies-Coco and Hunter. I have also been blessed with a niece and a god-daughter who are the other loves of my life. My family, friends, and students are what matter most in my life, and I feel fortunate to have the opportunity every year to share my love of reading and passion for language with a new group of students.
