Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to my website. My name is Ashley Ondek and I teach ELD 1 and English 1 at Liberty High School. I have lived in this area for most of my life, having graduated from Freedom High in 2006, and am invested in and devoted to this community. After finishing high school, I attended first LMC, then transferred to CSU East Bay to complete my BA in English with a focus in British and American literature, followed by a Masters in English. Since finishing graduate school, I began working at CSU East Bay as a reader and scorer for the Writing Skills Test (WST), which is used to assess whether or not prospective college graduates have satisfied the writing requirement and are eligible for graduation.
When not working, engaging in, or thinking about education, I enjoy reading, spending time with friends and family, going to Giants games, and going to the movies. My favorite book is The Great Gatsby, my favorite movie is "The Day After Tomorrow", my favorite color is yellow, and I hate tomatoes.
As a teacher, I have high expectations for behavior, productivity, and responsibility, but am always available to help struggling students succeed. For more information on my policies and how I structure my classes, please refer to the syllabus posted to the course page you are affiliated with. I want all of my students to be successful and am hopeful we will have a great 2019-2020 school year!
