Ms. Ashreetha Murugesan
Hello! My name is Ashreetha Murugesan. I was born in India and raised in Yuma, AZ. Not something you hear everyday! Tucson has been my home for the last 7 years.
Defining Moment in Education
Goodwill's Good Futures Youth Program gave me an opportunity to be a mentor for Southern Arizona's young-adults, ages 18-24. Working with these amazing individuals gave me joy to see positive impact develop. Based off that experience I decided to continue that impact; only this time with students! That is when my journey to be an educator began.
Core Educational Beliefs
Every student is capable to recognize their abilities in life. With guidance, advice, and generating engaging conversations from teachers, all students can initiate their efforts. My focus as an educator is to help students understand and appreciate the balance of academic goals and non-academic goals. It is exciting to witness such milestones be accomplished.
It is important that a teacher feels comfortable in a school environment in order to effectively instruct. At AMS, the focal point is educating students and creating a school community to get to know them. AMS allows me to assist in student success and develop foundations for their future!
Hobbies and Interest
I am a foodie, tennis lover, and a travel/ food TV watcher,. I enjoy all genres of music, a participant of Indian cultural-folk dance, and have a passion for fashion. When the weather is great, I'll definitely be outside!
