Welcome to Ashbel Smith Elementary! I have been in the education field for 38 years. I am married to a wonderful man who is also an administrator in the district. We have two amazing boys who are university graduates and are out in the professional world. I am all about family mine and yours.


I have been at Ashbel Smith for four years. On behalf of myself and the entire staff at Ashbel Smith Elementary, I would like to welcome you and your children to a truly wonderful learning community. Ashbel has an excellent teaching staff and support personnel that want to ensure every child succeeds.


Our goal is to support and encourage each child in achieving his/her optimum potential by instilling in them an intrinsic sense of worth, curiosity, and love of learning. Our teachers and staff will work diligently to raise the level of rigor so that our students are challenged daily. We are here to support you and your children in the pursuit of excellence.


Being actively involved in your child's education is essential in developing a strong partnership between home and school. It is very important each day to make sure you take time to talk to your child about what they are doing in school, have your child read to you, provide a quiet place to do homework every day, and help your child stay organized!


Our campus vision is to emphasize positive self-esteem, high academic standards, and civic responsibilities as we cultivate an appreciation for learning. We are a school where everyone shares in the responsibility for the success of every one of our students. As always, we welcome you on campus and value your input about your children. We look forward to an amazing year!
