About Us

Ashley Laverty

Teaching Artist

What’s your favorite quote?

"Be Here Now."  I even have it tattooed on my arm! It's my favorite because it reminds me that despite everything, I should remain present. If we don't focus on what's front of us, right now, today, one day we will wake up and have missed everything! (I like to remind my students to be here now, too, especially when they ask when it's time for lunch when we're in the middle of an activity!)


What is the one thing you plan to do to change the world, even a little?

I recently became a certified Kids Yoga instructor and I like to incorporate movement and yoga into my teaching. I hope to encourage students and young people to express themselves freely, in their own individual and lovely ways! 


What is your silliest irrational fear?

I am irrationally terrified of komodo dragons. This stems from a Hey Arnold! episode I saw almost 20 years ago...
