Ashley CollinsThis is my 3rd school year at Sheridan Green Elementary and 6th school year as a School Social Worker. I am at Sheridan Green on Mondays, Thursdays and alternating Wednesdays. I am so grateful to be in this role of supporting students, teachers, families and the entire Sheridan Green community!

My favorite part of my job is working with students to help them gain skills to feel a sense of emotional control, self regulation and overall happiness in their lives.

When I'm not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, dog, friends and family. I love to travel, practice yoga, adventure outside and in the mountains, garden and cook. In the summers I work as a director for Camp Comfort, which is an amazing camp for grieving children. My husband and I are also expecting our first baby in January 2020!

Lori SmithMy name is Lori Smith and I am the Instructional Coach at Sheridan Green Elementary.

I am a Jeffco native with over 20 years of experience in education. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Behavioral Science with a minor in Reading and a Master’s Degree of Science in Education. My teaching experience includes several years in Kindergarten through 2nd Grade. I also worked at the district level for five years to support school administrators with instruction and evaluation of instruction.

My role as an Instructional Coach includes classroom support and mentoring teachers. I also work extensively with data for the school and students. As a specialist in instruction and curriculum, I work closely with teachers to plan lessons and deliver best practices to meet the needs of our students. Additionally, I also strive to work as a catalyst for change and as a school improvement leader to consistently bring about the next best steps for our teachers and students.

In my time outside of school, I love to spend it with my wonderful, supportive husband, Kevin, of 28 years and my daughters, Brooke and Macy. We have a large family that we thoroughly enjoy too. As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, and traveling.

I love my job here at Sheridan Green and look forward to working with our teachers and students everyday!
