Welcome to 2nd Grade!
Hello, my name is Ashley Traino and this is my thirteenth year teaching at Springfield Township School. My first year here at Springfield I taught fifth grade, and then moved to second grade for eight years. I then went back to fifth grade for three years. This year, I'm back in second grade, looking forward to teach, learn, and play with your wonderful children.
I currently reside in Marlton with my husband, two sons (Jack, 6 / Ryan, 4), and our adorable dog, Mikey. My son Jack is extremely excited to begin his first grade year, while Ryan is completing his last year of Pre-K! As a family, we enjoy taking trips to the shore, going to Disney World, walking the aisles of Target, taking walks, riding bikes, jumping on the trampoline, going to different parks, having game nights, and cozying up while watching a movie!I love my job as an educator and strive to make each learning experience meaningful. I attended Shippensburg University in PA for my undergrad and continued my education by obtaining a Masters degree in Literacy (2011). Now, I am actively taking online course through Rutgers University to receive my Special Education certification. This has been a wonderful experience for me to grow as an educator and stay current with resources and strategies that will allow me to attend to all learners and create a cohesive and supportive learning environment.I look forward to a fantastic year!
