She exceled during her school years and earned many awards and recognitions.After college, Beverly began her teaching career. While reading to her classroom one day, she had an “aha” moment. She realized that none of the books she was reading talked about the teacher or how the teacher felt. That’s when her curiosity turned into accomplishing her dreams.Beverly created Mrs. Ashbury as a tool to empower students and educators through the representation of a Teacher as their advocate and a positive, exciting and welcoming presence in their world. Mrs. Ashbury and many of the experiences she shares with her students are modeled after Beverly’s actualencounters as a Teacher. She would like her readers to be aware that teachers are as excited, unsure, and have lessons they learn throughout the year, just as their students do; she wants the world to view teaching from the Teachers' perspective.
