I’m Mrs. Ayala and I have been an educator since 2006. I have taught all levels of English and Literature including Middle and High School levels as well as regular, honors, Pre IB, and AP Literature. My passion for Literature is my best teaching quality followed by my ability to make connections with students. My passion for education also grew into getting a Master’s in Education and completing all of my Doctoral work in the field of Higher Education, which assists me to understand what Colleges expect from their students.
When I am not sharing my passion for books with students, I am sharing my time with my family, especially my three boys in Roswell, Ga. I am looking forward to sharing my life’s passion with you and making you successful in fulfilling your goals.
