Grandville – Ashlee Buchholz is the new assistant principal at Grandville High School. SNN gets to know her in this edition of Meet Your Administrators.

Other positions you have held in education:

“I’ve pretty much been at Grandville my entire career – go Dawgs!” she said. “I just fell in love with the district and didn’t want to leave. When this new opportunity arose to move up (as an assistant principal), I knew I wanted to do it. I always hoped to move in that direction.”

What about jobs outside of education? Buchholz primarily worked in food service jobs while growing up in Allendale, beginning at the age of 14 when she began working in her mother’s restaurant. She later worked at an area Dairy Queen, at the Culver’s in Jenison and then spent eight years as a server and bartender at Texas Roadhouse, just down the road from GHS.

“Even when I taught here for the first two years, I was still at Texas Roadhouse on the weekends because I just couldn’t give it up. And honestly, you can make a lot of money doing that. (Holding down two jobs) was manageable until I became pregnant with my second child.”

What would you like to share about your family? Husband, Curtis; and three “very spirited and cheeky children”: Carter, 10; Beckett, 5; and Emerson, 2.

“We spend our days with lacrosse and football and basketball for my oldest son,” Buchholz said. “My youngest son is starting to play sports just a little, and then my daughter is… she is small; she’s just passing by.”

Hobbies/interests/talents: “I don’t think I have many talents to be honest, but I would say juggling my kids’ schedules might be one. As for hobbies, this past summer I took up running, cycling and fitness in general. … I really like reading and watching shows on Netflix. My decompression time is watching ‘The Office’ and ‘Parks and Recreation’ — when I finish one, I go back to the other, watch it all and then come back.”

What kind of child were you at the age of your students? “I would say I was very social; I was the social butterfly. I was a cheerleader for four years in college in high school, and I had a very large group of friends. I am a naturally outgoing and energetic person, and I feel that I thrive with others. So in high school, I was very much the one who was at all the sporting events and dressed up and got excited — that was me.”

Buchholz said that personality trait helped her thrive in leadership roles at the high school level: “I’ll always be a cheerleader at heart. Like, I love championing things and getting others excited about them. And I think that’s something that I brought to my teaching and now in this role. I’m really excited about the initiatives I’m pushing.”

The biggest lesson you’ve learned from students is… “I think we all need time to slow down, find the humor in things and not take things too seriously. There have been times in my classroom when I say, ‘we just need to get through this content by the end of the day,” but then kids want to tell a story or bring up something funny and I realize I have to listen to them. It’s just about taking a minute. All those other things can wait because forming relationships affects children – they need it, and adults need it too.”

If you could go back to school, which class would you go back to, and why? “I honestly think I would go back to high school. I think I spent a lot of time wanting the next thing, and I may not have slowed down to appreciate all the really cool things that college has to offer. I wish I could go back and realize how great every moment was for me at the time while I was there because it goes crazy fast.”

If you were to walk into your new school building to a theme song that fits your personality, what would the song be, and why? “I would say something cheerful, something energetic. I am a morning person and I like to bring positivity and start each day in a happy, optimistic tone. So I’d like something that, when you hear it, you’ll smile and say, ‘Okay, let’s go take on the challenge of the day.’ That’s me.”

How long is a mile on a track?

A standard outdoor track is exactly 400 meters around the innermost lane. On the same subject : Meet the 2019 Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders. Since a mile is 1600 meters, four laps around a standard track will add up to one mile.

How many miles are ten laps? Therefore, 10 laps would equal 4,000 meters, which is the equivalent of 2.5 miles.
