Hello! My name is Ashley Smith and I will be your kiddos Kindergarten teacher this year! I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education. This is my second year at San Tan but fifth year in the Higley District. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a Paraprofessional with children who have special needs. Working with children is my passion, seeing the leaps and bounds they take at this age is very rewarding! In my free time I enjoy going to the gym, anything outdoors, being surrounded by family and friends and playing with my puppy, Lily. I am looking forward to a year of fun in Kindergarten! Please feel free to email me with any questions/concerns!
