The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Here’s what you need to know about Ashlyn:

  3. She used to attend Altario School where her mom was a high school English teacher and her dad drove a school bus for a year or two.
  4. She did a stint in homeschool, which let her emphasize her interests in writing, art, music, and videography. She now attends J.C. Charyk Hanna School where her mom is also an English teacher and where her dad now (occasionally) drives a bus.
  5. She is used to having her grammar corrected. A lot. (Thanks, Mom.)
  6. And her spelling.
