             Ashley Gusukuma teaches physics, preap physics, preap chemistry and dual credit chemistry at Caddo Mills High School.  Caddo Mills ISD selected her as the secondary teacher of the year for the 2019-2020 school year.  She has 9 years of teaching experience in secondary science classrooms in Texas. Mrs. Gusukuma holds a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry from Baylor University. She also holds two master degrees: a Master’s of Arts in Clinical Psychology from Argosy University Dallas and a Master’s of Science in Chemistry from Texas A&M University Commerce.
     
           Mrs. Gusukuma has experience teaching a variety of science topics and working with academically diverse populations. She utilizes a combination of gamification, technology integration, project based learning, scientific notebooking, and hands on labs, as well as traditional methods to increase student engagement and help each student truly understand and apply the science witnessed around them. Mrs. Gusukuma strongly believes that science should inspire fun, amazement, pride, and a natural curiosity to want to know more- anything short is not doing the field justice. Mrs. Gusukuma strives to help students not only focus on what they may do when they grow up, but also give each student the skills and confidence to know that he or she can make a difference now. In her classrooms there is a focus on 21st century skills such as collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity in order to better prepare her students for today’s university environments and the modern workforce.
     
    Mrs. Gusukuma is married and has three wonderful daughters. Her hobbies include gaming, anime, and spending time with her family.
