Alumni spotlight: Ashton Sanders, Learning Specialist (French)

Teachers are influencers!

Thank you to all the BEd graduates with a specialization in French who answered our call and shared their career stories with us! The responses warmed our hearts. ⁠

Congratulations to the grand prize winner, Ashton Sanders (BEd ’17), who declined the prize and generously donated instead to a charitable children’s literacy program.⁠

Her advice to teacher candidates embarking on their career: “Be willing to take risks and try new things! You never know what you may discover or what path it may lead to!”
