Ms. Ashley Januski
Hello, I'm Ms. J and I am the 8th grade ELA teacher at Canyon Springs STEM Academy. I am excited to be back teaching after being CEO of Januski Enterprises. (Also known as a stay-at-home mom.) I have previously taught 6 years of Middle and High School in Colorado as well as Arizona. My husband and 3 sons are all native Arizonans. I've only been here since I was a year old. My husband and I grew up in Prescott, AZ and graduated from Prescott High School. After P.H.S. I went to Yavapai College for two years and finished my degree at FortLewis College in Durango, CO. I have a B.A. in English Education with a secondary teaching certificate.
I have lived in Colorado, Minnesota, New Jersey and Arizona. All those places are beautiful, but AZ has the best sunsets! I love reading, karaoke, a good cup of coffee, being with my family, concerts, podcasts, and hanging out with my dog, named Scout after To Kill a Mockingbird.
I am excited about being on this journey with my students this year! We are going to have an excellent year full of exploring ideas, developing a greater love for literature, working on our writing skills, and seeking answers to interesting questions.
