Hello, Beautiful People!

I am Ashley Bridgewater, a product of Waco Independent School District. It is an honor, a privilege to inspire, motivate, encourage, develop and improve the hearts of this community. Which includes our Internal, External Stakeholders, and most importantly the students here at J.H. Hines Elementary.

This is my ninth year in education and here with Waco Independent School District where I have served as an Instructional Aide, In School Suspension Aide, Teacher and Coach at G.W. Carver Middle School and Waco High School. I was selected by faculty and staff at G.W. Carver as Teacher of the Year 2015, and also Teacher of the Year at Waco High School in 2018. I have also been selected by the student body as one of the Top 10 Teachers in the District along with Homecoming Queen for Teachers, 2018.

This is my first full year as a Rising Leader in Administration here at J.H. Hines. Although, I started in October 2019, this is the year I get to experience it all and I am excited and grateful about it!

As an Educator and now as an Instructional Leader, each day I have the opportunity to stretch Students and New Teachers, challenge them, and compel them to grow. I get to see the greatness in them that they may not yet see themselves. It is my privilege, it is my purpose, and it is my gift from God. “Teach children in a way that fits their needs, and even when they are old, they will not leave the right path.” Proverbs 22:6 ERV

I look forward to serving and being part of history here at J. H. Hines Elementary!


Humbly Submitted,

Ashley D. Bridgewater, MCJ
