Mrs. Ashley Head
This is my fifth year teaching at Westwood and my sixth year teaching in Mesa Public Schools. I am the daughter of two high school teachers--one at Dobson and one in Scottsdale. I grew up in the Scottsdale School District and graduated from Chaparral High School. Wanting a change of scenery, I moved to Flagstaff to attend Northern Arizona University, where I studied Secondary English Education with a minor in Biology. I then spent a year teaching in Scottsdale. Despite the fact that I grew up in Scottsdale, my first time in front of a class was in Mesa (before I was even born!) and I loved it so much I decided to return. I spent a year teaching Biology as a mustang at Dobson before finding my warrior spirit and making my way to Westwood, where I found my home! After three years of teaching English here, I decided I missed the science classroom and switched back to Biology.
Outside of school, I enjoy training and teaching martial arts with my husband, playing Dungeons and Dragons, and cuddling with Lando, my dog, and Bast, my cat.
