As we entered the classroom of enthusiastic teacher Ashleigh Tighe, she greeted us in yet another one of her unique outfits. From her iconic red lipstick to her classy blue jeans, many of Tighe’s students are in awe of her effort to show up to school in fashion. We interviewed her on a few questions regarding her day to day style and here were her answers:
