Open letter from Ash

Dear supporters:
I met with the Alameda Unified School District Superintendent to discuss my termination. It seems as though I was fired because I failed to follow lesson plans when I substituted in many classes over an extended period of time. 

The fact that I was not warned ahead of my firing is on them. For not following lesson plans is on me. I’m not sure if I can change or will change. I’m sad, but life goes on within you and without you.

I am deeply grateful for all the support so many of you have given me. I feel blessed. In some ways I am ashamed for putting you through a mistake on my part. 

Thanks, thanks, thanks.
