     Hi!  My name is Ashley Sellers, and I am a 10th Grade English and Theatre teacher at Brookwood High School.  I am also a proud wife and mother who loves watching my son play baseball, floating in a swimming pool, writing in my journal, editing movies, and cheering for both the Panthers and the Crimson Tide!
