About Me:  My name is Ashley Zinchuk and I’ve lived in the North Shore for about 6 years. I enjoy running, baking, reading, and spending time with my husband, our dog and cat, family and friends.

Education:  Graduated cum laude from the University of Massachusetts

Honors and Awards:  Commonwealth College

Memorable Teaching Moment:  I have many memorable moments but the most recent would have to be with a student who made it known all year how much s/he “hated school”. I asked her/him if s/he had a favorite part of first grade and s/he quickly responded with “no” but then later stated “Mrs. Zinchuk, I don’t love school, but I really like coming to see you every day”. I feel like I really made a difference for this student even if s/he didn’t necessarily love school, s/ he always came because I was there.

Favorite Quote:
