Hello! My name is Ashley Ryan and I have been at GFA since 2016. I am an AZ native and have lived here
my whole life. I’ve been married to my husband for 15 years and I have 3 kids here who attend GFA. Jill-
13, Kyler-10 and Lydia-8.
My daughter Jill is a softball club player and pitcher. You’ll usually find us on the softball field on the
weekends and during the week. Kyler is an avid soccer player and Lydia is starting up with softball now
I love to play board and card games and host game nights. You’ll almost always find me with a cup of
coffee in hand. I love shopping and supporting small business and I’m a lover of food.
I’m currently finishing up my BA in Elementary Education at GCU and will be graduating in May 2023.
God has been instrumental in my pursuits to education from the time I was very young. I’ve worked with
kids since I was 15, starting as a teacher assistant in a preschool. I’ve since worked my way up to
Assistant Director at a preschool, had kids and now working as a teacher. GFA has been my home for 6
years and I’ve enjoyed working with several grades over the years, but Kinder has special place in my
heart. God is good and I’m so thankful for the opportunity to teach here at our wonderful school.
