Ashley Dantzler, 5th Grade Team Lead

College(s): Oklahoma State University. 

Teaching Experience: I began my teaching career at Boggess Elementary in Plano and spent seven years teaching first, second and fourth grade. I came to Huffman two years ago and I could not ask for a better place to be!

Family: I have one brother, Kyle, who is four years younger than me and a chocolate lab, Ellie, who is my 'daughter!' 

Interests/Hobbies Outside of School: I am a sports fanatic! I enjoy going to any football games, especially my Dallas Cowboys! I like to think I have wanderlust and enjoy traveling as much as anything. Music is always playing wherever I am and you can count on me taking a trip to go shopping sometime soon! Outside of school, you can also find me volunteering at church. My family and friends are my world and spending quality time with them makes me the happiest!

Why did you want to start the IB PYP at Huffman? I am a product of Plano ISD and it has been a privilege to be able to come back and teach in the district that provided me with such a firm foundation. The implementation of the IB/PYP program is such a pivotal moment in fostering the love of learning and character of each student. With my own global experiences that have sustained and shaped my love of teaching, I am looking forward to helping each child grow as an individual when they step foot inside and outside my classroom. I am blessed to be a part of something so monumental in their lives.
