Ashleigh Williams

SEAL (Sobrato Early Academic Language) Model
Program Specialist
Ashleigh Williams worked as a Spanish DI K-2 teacher for five years in Redwood City and Salinas before joining the SEAL team. While teaching, she was SEAL-trained and helped to develop two dual immersion programs which deepened her passion for teaching language and culture. Ashleigh has seen the incredible benefits and deep, lasting effects of SEAL on her students — a feeling of respect for others as well as for themselves, a deeper skill set in new and native languages, and a spark that can only be described as a joy for learning. Her bilingual, English and Italian, upbringing are natural sources for her profound value, respect, and honor for home languages and their place in a classroom setting. Ashleigh holds a BA in Spanish Literature from UC Davis.
