Ms. Ashley Branson

My name is Ms. Branson and I am so excited to welcome you to my classroom! I am a special education teacher here at Desert Sage. I graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University in May 2022, with a Bachelors in Special and Elementary Education, and a minor in Psychology. I was lucky enough to do my student teaching at Desert Sage, and after spending a year with our amazing students, knew I wanted to stay at Desert Sage! I was born in Canada and grew up in Southern California, so I have only been in the Phoenix area for a few years. The heat has definitely taken some getting used to, but I enjoy living here with my cat, Eleanor.
I love finding ways to help students engage and connect with their materials and curriculum, and can’t wait to help my students reach their goals this year!
