I am Ashley Cammick. I grew up in Tampa, Florida USA, then moved to South Carolina after high school. My Parents still live there, so it is my home away from Japan. I have my Masters in education and Elementary teaching certificate from Anderson University in South Carolina. I moved to Japan in 2012 where I began teaching kindergarten. Kindergarten quickly became my passion and I am happy to continue at SSIS.
