Mrs. April Ashworth
Special Education Teacher
Welcome parents, guardians, and students! I am excited about starting my eighth year of teaching Special Education in North Carolina. Prior to my husband becoming a Navy Veteran and our family moving back home to North Carolina, I worked for the Public Schools of Porstmouth in Portsmouth VA. I am a proud graduate of Lumberton High School, GO PIRATES! I have been here at Lumberton High School as a highly qualified special education teacher for seven years. My professional goal for this year is to create a more positive learning environment by celebrating teacher and student successes as often as possible.
I graduated from Fayetteville State University in 2007 with an Undergraduate degree in Sociology along with a minor in Social Work. Soon after graduation I enrolled in a Master's program at Cambrige College. In 2010 I graduated with a Master's Degree in Special Education, Specific Learning Disabilities (K-12). My husband and I have been married for 16 years. We have two children and one cute puppy princess named Jojo. I am looking forward to a wonderful school year!
