HENRY COUNTY, GA –Ashley Stamper, a Dutchtown High School senior is the recipient of the Work-Based Learning Student of the Month honor for January.

Stamper’s intern position places her at Dutchtown Elementary working with kindergarten teacher Valerie Middlebrooks’ class. “Ashley works extremely hard in the classroom,” added Middlebrooks. “She has a passion for working with students and helping them to reach their full potential. Her positive attitude and dedication make her an asset while working as an intern at DES in a kindergarten classroom.”

“I will be attending Point University in the fall on a golf scholarship and major in Early Childhood Education,” said Stamper. “After earning my bachelor’s degree and completing my student teaching requirements, I can then take the next step to becoming a Kindergarten teacher.”

According to Stamper her Early Childhood Education class has paid dividends. She notes the many lessons learned and the growth opportunity it has afforded her.

“I have learned how children develop physically, mentally, and emotionally, and I am beyond ready to further my knowledge after I graduate. I have also had hands on experiences. Along with other classmates, we had the chance to teach preschoolers for five months. We took the initiative to help them develop skills they needed to learn and it was such a great experience.”

Stamper’s teacher, Patricia Branion, noted, “Ashley is an excellent student in the Early Childhood classroom,” said Branion. “She worked really well with the preschoolers, showing lots of patience. She was an awesome student.”
