Ashley Rives of Me & Marie Learning.jpg


Hey!!! I am Ashley Rives from the good-ole midwest.

I am a preschool teacher with an early education degree that has a big heart for little learners.  Being on the teacher side of preschool, I know how much time, planning and care it takes to give my students my best.  This is why I am here- because I love helping dedicated preschool teachers save sanity with easy, time-saving, "I can really use this" resources!
