Mrs. Ashley Dawson
Howdy! My name is Ashley Dawson. I am entering my fifteenth year of education. Time flies when you are doing what you love! I previously taught kindergarten at Wilderness Oak for five years. I am excited to begin my tenth year at Vineyard Ranch. I have had the privilege of teaching kindergarten and first grade at the Ranch.
I was born and raised in San Antonio. I am a proud product of NEISD! I attended Thousand Oaks Elementary School, Driscoll Middle School, Churchill High School, and graduated from Reagan High School! I continued my education in the great city of College Station (Aggieland). I graduated from Texas A&M University with a degree in early childhood education. I am certified to teach early childhood through grade four with an ESL supplement.
My husband’s name is Daniel and we have been married for 12 years. We have a Labrador named Sadie. She is the sweetest dog and loves to play outside. My greatest joy are my two children named Eli and Emree. Eli is 6 years old and full of energy. He is thrilled to start first grade at Hidden Forest. My precious daughter will be 3 in December and is full of life.
I look forward to providing hands-on, engaging, and interactive learning for all my students. I strive to create a safe, friendly, and comfortable environment to grow successful learners and leaders. Being an educator is the most entertaining, heartwarming, and joyous position to hold. Because of my strong passion for teaching, I know this will be another momentous year!
