Mrs. Ashley I. Semmes

My name is Ashley Semmes and I teach 4th grade here at Fairhope Intermediate.  This will be my third year at this school and I am proud to call myself a Fairhope Pirate.  I grew up in North Alabama and received my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree at Jacksonville State University.  We moved to Baldwin County a several years ago and truly love being here.  I taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 3rd grade at Magnolia School in Magnolia Springs before transferring to Fairhope Intermediate.  I love teaching my Smarties!  

I am currently working towards my Masters degree in Gifted Education with Troy State University (Jacksonville State's biggest rival, so shhhh - don't tell them).  

I believe ALL students can learn.  I believe in using a variety of methods to allow students to be successful and know that hands-on activities and life problems teach more than worksheets ever could.  I believe encouragement is a superpower and that having a positive classroom creates positive learners!  

I have been married to Marc Semmes for 20 years, who is an attorney here in Fairhope, and we have 3 amazing children.  Our boys attend Fairhope High School and our daughter attends Fairhope Elementary.  Michael is a SENIOR this year (I can't believe I'm this old!).  Matthew is a Junior and Shelby is in 3rd grade.  We are busy with band, swim, soccer, sailing, drama, and dance.  We are active in the community and love staying busy.  We have a cat named Lucy, 4 frogs, and 4 crabs.  One day, we will add a dog into this crazy mix.  :)  In my spare time (HAHAHA!) I love to sing, read, watch football, and do a little autocross racing.
