My name is Ashley Mays and this is my fifth year in education. I worked for one year in North Kansas City School District as a Paraprofessional and have spent the last four years as a first grade teacher at KCIA. I graduated from Park University in 2013 with my Bachelors of Science Degree in Elementary Education. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in Language and Literacy which will allow me to be a Reading Specialist teacher after I graduate. I have been married for almost 4 years and together we have an amazing two year old son! We enjoy spending time together as a family exploring Kansas City and love to travel when we can. I look forward to working with all of my wonderful first graders this year!
