Miss Ashley Arlt


Hello, my name is Ashley Arlt and I am excited to start my fourth year here at Lakeview Jr-Sr High School.  I grew up in Columbus, NE and graduated from Columbus High School.  I received my undergraduate degree from Wayne State College in the areas of Spanish and Business.  I then received my teaching degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney and my Master's Degree in Secondary Education Administration from Concordia College.

I live in Columbus with my son, Jackson (11) who is a 6th grader at Columbus Middle School and my dog Oliver.  We love spending our days at our cabin swimming, fishing and four-wheeling. My son and I also love to travel and explore new places.  I have been a Spanish teacher for 18 years (I also taught one year of English as a Second Language in Barcelona, Spain) and love teaching students a new language and culture!  I can't wait to see what the 2023-2024 school year will bring!

    Miss Arlt's Rules and Procedures for Spanish 1, 2, and 3/4




    1.   Come to class prepared.

    • Be on time to class.
      • In your seat ready to learn.
      • Bring needed supplies
        • Homework
        • Binder
        • Writing utensil
    • Homework is due at the beginning of class!
      • Late assignments can be handed in, but the highest grade a late paper can receive is a 70%.
      • If not handed in by the end of the chapter/unit, it’s a zero.


    2.   Be respectful.

    • No talking or working on other assignments while I’m teaching.
    • Phones must not be used while in class.
    • NO EARBUDS unless told you can use them.
    • Pay attention and listen when your classmates are talking.
    • No name calling/bullying.

    3.   If you are absent, it is your responsibility to get your assignments.

    • See me in person or email me.


    4.   Adhere to all the rules in the student handbook.

      • Using a translator or Artificial Intelligence IS CHEATING! I want to know what you know, not GOOGLE!
