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!
