Hello!! My name is Ashley Hayde and I am the K/1 ELL Specialist.. I graduated from the University of Central Missouri (UCM) in 2009 with my degree in Elementary Education and Early Childhood. I received my TESOL Certification in 2019. I taught kindergarten for 13 years, and made the switch to K/1 ELL specialist this year. I have a dog named Sara and a cat named Mia. They are my word, along with all of my nieces and nephews. I love spending time with my friends and family in my free time, along with going to Target and getting Starbucks. I am looking forward to this school year and everything it brings.
