Mrs. Ashley Hendrickson

Welcome, students and parents!  Thank you so much for visiting my page!  I am entering my 13thyear as a teacher, my fourth year in Plano ISD, and my second year as the AVID Coordinator at CHS!  I've been a part of AVID in various capacities over the last 10 years - as a co-coordinator, as an elective teacher, and as an active member of a site team.  In addition, for most of my career I've been an AP and Dual Credit English teacher and professor, an AP Reader for College Board, and an AP English curriculum writer and coach for the National Math and Science Initiative.  Though I've spent much of my career in an English classroom, at heart, I think I've always run my classroom as an AVID classroom.  I am so passionate about the work we do in this program!  

I attended undergrad at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned my B.A. in English, and then attended Texas State University, where I earned my master's in Literature.  My classroom is colorful and cheerful - I like to say it looks like a unicorn threw up in it.  

With the support of my husband Jacob, and the love of my two beautiful babies Erik (3.5) and Johanna (almost 2), I am blessed to be encouraged daily in doing the work that I love so much and am so passionate about.  

This year I'm so grateful to be back face to face with all of my returning AVID students - I can't wait to see the growth and fun that this year brings.
