Ashlyn Gearhart

Hi, my name is Ashlyn Gearhart and I am so excited to be your child’s teacher this year. I graduated from Arkansas Tech University and began teaching in 2014. I taught Special Education in the Jackson County School District for a year before coming here. I love to be outside, and enjoy hiking, camping, and running. When I’m not at school teaching or at home with my husband and son, I love to go on cruises. They’re my favorite! I look forward to a great year with your child. It’s a great day at Crawford!
