Hello Fellow Leopards,
My name is Ashley Heid and I am looking forward to this year at Willow Springs! This will be my fifth year in Lovejoy. I taught 6th grade English my first year at Sloan Creek, 7th grade English the next year, and am looking forward to teaching my third year of 8th grade at Willow Springs. I am happily married to my best friend, Billy. We have two children: Billy V, who is eight and will be attending fourth grade at Lovejoy Elementary, and Kaydence Faith who turned four in July! We also have 2 German Shepherds, (Mya and Elly).
I am originally from Lubbock, Texas. I met my husband there, while in college. We moved to New York in 2006 to be close to his family. We lived there for a year, and then my husband was offered a job back in Texas, so we came back! I started my teaching career in 2009 at Ferris Junior High. I taught 7th and 8th Grade English. This will be my seventh year of teaching, and I am proud to say that I have found my passion. I strive to show each of my students that hard work and dedication does pay off and that each student is capable of being and will be successful.
I am so honored to be a part of such an extraordinary district. I look forward to working with you and your child/children!
