LAUREL — It’s hard not to miss Ashley Promes’ bright smile.
The first-year Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Level Three instructor is always smiling or laughing.
Promes is not a new face to the Laurel-Concord-Coleridge Middle School. For the last few years she was a para for the Level Three program.
Last May she graduated from the University of Nebraska, Kearney with a certification in K-12 special education. Prior to completing her teaching certification, Promes completed her Bachelor’s in Social Work through UNK.
She is currently working toward her Master’s in K-12 Special Education. She is on track for graduating with her master’s this spring.
A brief conversation with Promes makes it easy to see how passionate she is about her teaching position.
“Each student has a unique and different personality, each day is different and very rewarding,” she said.
