Hello! My name is Ashley Wilson. I have a big heart with a passion for music and I cannot wait to share that with our kids at Hough Elementary! I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Portland State University. Since then, I have continued to study and share my passion for music by teaching with Metropolitan Youth Symphony and Portland Youth Philharmonic along with private French Horn lessons and performances with Southwest Washington Wind Symphony.
Besides music, I love to spend time with my loved ones indoors and out. I enjoy traveling, reading, cooking/baking, crocheting, sports, games and nature. I am a PNW person so rain or shine, I am ready to explore.
Music is my vehicle to connect to people of all ages. For our children at Hough Elementary, I want to provide our young people with joy, music and confidence. I want them to have confidence to try new things and have the integrity to overcome obstacles. Joy will be cultivated from the community the students will create with their music and friends. I am excited to be here and experience the joy together!
