The Ash’s Retirement
April 10, 2023
Two teachers at Roseville High are retiring this year. Math and economics teacher Doug Ash and Culinary teacher Angela Ash. Angela has her reasons why her and her husband Doug are choosing to retire after this school year.
“It’s time. It’s been fifteen years and this particular setup is a lot of work, it’s very physical and I’m not getting any younger. So fortunately we are able to retire. We want to be healthy and travel. So all these places that I’ve been taking kids to through food that’s where we’re going to go,” Angela said.
The Ashs plan on moving to Arizona after they leave Roseville, to comfortably live on a golf course and relax, but there are certainly some things they will miss. Still, they visited their future home over Spring Break and are excited for the new start.
“I think that’s the one of things I’m going to miss the most is running into people that have graduated two, three, four years down the road and they’ve got families and careers and that sort of thing so moving to Arizona we’re not going to see that we’re not going to have that but we’ll be back to visit,” Angela said.
Doug will miss teaching everyday, especially economics. Economics helped the Ashs retire through investing. Doug immensely enjoyed teaching students how to be smart with their money, and will also miss the activities he was involved in throughout the years.
“I was the wrestling coach, the head coach for eight or nine years. I have been coaching here since 2005 I think,” Doug said. “I know that I’m going to miss that when I retire but that’s always been fun and of course we’re going to miss that people that we’ve gotten to know over the years. The kids kinda roll through obviously, so we don’t see them year after year, but the teachers in my department, I’m sure we’ll miss them quite a bit for sure.”
