My name Ashlee Scott and I am the K3 teacher at CCS. I have been a part of CCS for 16 years now. I worked in the Excel program and a K4 teacher’s aid for 4 years and 12 years teaching K3. I was also a previous student here at Canyonside. I started as a K4 student and was the first 6th grade class to graduate from Canyonside. My teaching philosophy/classroom goals are; I want them to love and enjoy coming to school. I want them to go home every day and say, “Guess what we did in school today?” I believe school needs to be fun and exciting, especially for three-year olds. I know that each child is created in their own unique way and their minds function differently, so it is important to me to teach in a way that best fits each child’s needs. I am also a huge believer in encouragement and want all my students to know that they CAN do anything they set their minds to. And lastly, but most importantly, I want each student to know they are LOVED by not only me, but by our Heavenly Father. What a blessing it is to share God’s love with each child and see their faces in amazement with every Bible story we share is absolutely beautiful!
I am extremely blessed with an amazing husband, Casey and two little boys, Lander (4) and Chandler (2). I love to do anything outdoors – hiking, fishing, camping, bicycling, walking the canyon, kayaking, and playing tennis. I also enjoy arts and crafts, shopping, and just hanging out with family and friends.
I started going to Canyonside when I was four years old up until I was in the 6th grade and even after I graduated from Canyonside, I was still here. For those who might not know, my mom is the beautiful secretary Mrs. Kathy, who was previously the very first K3 teacher to ever teach at Canyonside. So, for me, when I say that this school feels like my second home, it’s because it literally is! Watching my mom’s love for teaching sparked a fire in me and at a very young age and I felt God’s calling on my life to be a teacher. I truly love this school! I have witnessed so many ups and downs here at Canyonside, but one thing that always remains the same is God is always faithful. I can consider it to be such a huge blessing and honor God called ME to be a teacher here at HIS school.
