Ashley Kasparek-Garcia



 I am so excited to start this new school year! My name is Ashley Kasparek-Garcia and this will be my eleventh year here at Taylor Middle School. This year I am teaching 8th grade American History, 8th Grade Language Arts, and 7th/8th grade AVID.

I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education from the University of New Mexico, as well as a master's degree in secondary education from the same university. I have been married to my husband Nestor, who is  a firefighter/paramedic for Santa Fe County, for seven years and together we have have two beautiful children, Ava who is 6 and Mia who is 2. 

This is my first year utilizing a webpage for the class (please be kind as I figure things out) and I hope you find the resources available helpful. Students will be expected to have their Interactive Notebooks (IN) with them at all times. Interactive Notebooks will be a requirement for all of the classes that I teach. This notebook will contain the majority of their assignments. Please look through your student's Interactive Notebook periodically to see what your student is in class. Interactive Notebooks will be collected once every week or two for grading. Please remember that grades can be found on ParentVue. My planbook with daily lessons, objective/essential questions, and homework for all classes are posted online. Please refer to the link on the this website. 

Please communicate any questions, concerns, or comments you may have. I can be reached by email: kasparek@aps.edu or by telephone 898-3666. Here is to a wonderful school year!
