ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)- Ashley Crompton is a Second Grade Teacher who has the biggest heart when it comes to children.  All year long she does fundraising to raise money for a camp she puts on for abused children.  The camp is called Royal Kids Camp.  It's a week long camp where these kids go to do Team building activities that build their self-esteem.  She also recruits teenagers to volunteer their time to help out and be role models for these abused kids.

Not only does she put a lot of her time, money and effort into helping these kids but she also requests the children who have behavior issues to be in her class so she can boost their self esteem as well.  She knows these children struggle with making good choices and she celebrates their successes when they do the right thing.

I don't know any teacher who goes above and beyond to helping children more than Miss Ashley Crompton!

Ashley received $500.00 from Weber Chevrolet (
