Very nice in person and very warm hearted and funny but has a horrible way of teaching thats why people complain that the class is hard its doesnt become a matter of learning but just cramming and memorizing which I assure you students will feel forget 95% of what they crammed in

After my 10 years of school I have never met a teacher as wonderful, caring, experienced as mr. Ashman. He is a teacher that wants you to succeed in life he reminds me of the teacher in dead poets society. I've had him for Latin ( which this year is the last year of the Latin program so boo you Hoover.) having him as my Latin teacher is a privilege I'll never forget him as a teacher when I grow up and start my life thank you mr ashman

Mr. Ashman despite his non-traditional way of teaching is one of the few teachers in America who will teach you. Speaking from his own experiences he has a lot of insight on certain topics. He doesn't do quizzes or homework (rarely) but his tests aren't easy. Honestly, he is the best teacher I've had. gratias optimus magister !!

Mr. Ashman is a great teacher that honestly cares about his students and isn't merciless like many other teachers. He tries to help his students in any way he can and listens to students worries. He is very nice and knows which students work hard and rewards them with extra credit points when he sees something is above and beyond. A great teacher and a great person!

He's awesome. He treats us respectfully and always listens to your opinion. I wouldn't have survived high school without him, he's very kind and understanding. I have no idea why anyone would have a problem with him. :D

I love Mr. Ashman! I'm not a history fan, but even though it's one of my lower priorities, I always do his work first! He doesn't assign busywork which gives you time to study on your own, and if you can't get an assignment done, he's really nice about it. You learn about so many things in his class. I have him for Latin as well. Best choice I ever made! No matter how awful my school day is, he makes it worth it!

Mr. Ashman hardly teaches. All he does is read the online notes, which I could do at home. I do not consider that teaching, and because of this, I do not consider him a teacher. He needs to retire.
