Hello! My name is Ashley Swanson, and I am absolutely thrilled to be your child's first grade teacher this year. I was born and raised in the Chandler area, and I love calling it my home. Growing up in Chandler and attending Chandler schools from Kindergarten-12th grade, I feel especially grateful to teach in this outstanding district. In my spare time, you can find me spending time with family and friends, shopping, drinking Dr. Pepper or Starbucks, traveling, or catching a movie at Harkins.

My Education and Professional Background

I graduated from Arizona State University, a year early, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, and also earned an endorsement in Structured English Immersion. GO DEVILS! I began my teaching career at Tarwater in 2014. I love being a teacher in the Toro Family!

My Educational Philosophy

Teaching is a true passion of mine, and I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child. I will work extremely hard to ensure that each student in my classroom experiences an environment in which he or she feels safe, respected, and ready to learn. We will be having a lot of fun this year, and I look forward to partnering with you in your child's education! Not only is Tarwater a family, but our classroom is a family.
