Meet the C-SPL November 2023 Reader of the Month, Ashley Hoppenjan!
As a mom of two and an English teacher, books provide me with so many ways to connect with my family, students, and friends. When I’m not parenting or teaching, I love spending time with family and friends, working out, and travelling.
Reading makes every activity better. Whether I’m commuting to work, folding laundry, or relaxing with my kids, audiobooks and physical books make the time more meaningful.
