Ashley Rice

Welcome to GHS! I am originally from Upper Darby, Pennsylvania, which is located right outside the Philadelphia city limits, but I moved to Huntsville in 2006. I am married to a native Huntsvillian and have two beautiful daughters. I attended Harding University for two years before moving to Alabama then graduated from Athens State University in 2008. I began my teaching career at the Academy for Academics & Arts in 2009, continued at the Academy for Science & Foreign Language from 2011-2019, and now teach English at Grissom High School. After many years of investing myself into the school system, my church, my family, and this community, I am thankful to call Huntsville home.
