Ashley Smithson, 6th grade literacy

My name is Ashley Smithson.  I was born and raised in Nashville, Tn. I am a graduate of Tennessee State University. Most people would describe me as being confident and dependable. I am a lover of creativity and the freedom of expression through art. I enjoy dancing, painting, writing, taking selfies, spending time with my family and close friends, and binge watching shows on Netflix. I look forward to sharing my love of writing and arts with my students this year. The most important lesson I want my students to take from me this year is that they are capable of doing anything they put their mind to. I am excited to begin this year and embark on my teaching journey as a Matador.
