Hello and welcome to 1st grade! My name is Ashlyn Ellsworth and I'm super excited to be teaching your child this year at Carlson! We are going to have a fabulous year where we learn many news things and collaborate together as lifelong learners! I'm excited to begin our journey as Carlson Champions together!
My Education and Professional Background
My teaching career began in Draper, Utah where I watched many of my grade school teachers instill a love of learning in their students. I continued pursuing my dream by earning my degree in Elementary Education from Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah. My teaching career began in 2006 and has taken me to 3 different states (Utah, Arizona, and Colorado) and I’ve gained experience in 4 different grade levels 1st-4th grades. I'm proud to be a part of the Carlson family and love teaching 1st grade where each child shows an amazing amount of growth and builds independence.
My Educational Philosophy
As a teacher I believe that all children are capable of success. It is my goal this year to foster a love of learning in all of my students and to encourage them to always do their very best. I will create a safe learning environment where all children feel respected and loved. I set high expectations for my first graders and work closely with them to create academic goals and achieve them. I look forward to partnering with you in providing the best year for your first grade student!
