Mr. Benjamin Ashmore

Hello, I am Mr. Ashmore, and am excited to be your social studies teacher this year.  This is my 15th year of teaching overall, and I am excited to be back at Stetson Hills for my third year. I am originally from Jenison (near Grand Rapids), Michigan and moved to Phoenix, Arizona in 2006 to pursue a career in teaching. I hold a Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis on History and Business Education from Central Michigan Univerisity.  Phoenix has been great to me and I enjoy the wonderful weather we experience.

I have been married to my wife Lauren for six years.  I have two wonderful daughters Presley (5 years old and going into Kindergarten), and Brynn ( 2 years old.)  In addition, we have a golden doodle named Rylee who is 7 years old.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading books of all genres, watching basketball, and enjoying historical and superhero movies (Spiderman!)

I am very passionate about teaching social studies and hope to pass along some of that passion and excitement to my students through engaging and thoughtful activities.  I have high expectations for all of my students and plan to challenge them academically.   I hope to have a great year and fun year teaching 7th grade!
