My name is Ashley Smith! I attended Northern Arizona University and earned my Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education, graduating in 2020. I am so excited to be here at San Tan! This is my first year teaching, though my fourth year in the classroom. I have worked for Higley as a Paraprofessional in Special Education classrooms here at San Tan and other schools in the district. I also attended Higley schools as a student.
I grew up in Billings, Montana and moved to Arizona with my family when I was 11. I love the heat! When I am not in the classroom, I enjoy playing with my puppy, Lily, being active, shopping, movie watching and hanging out with my family. I recently have fallen in love with skydiving!
