Hello! My name is Ashley Spiesman and this is my first year teaching 5th grade. Before coming to Oakdale, I taught 6th grade for three years. I grew up in the East Bay Area, but have lived in Sacramento for a while now. I went to San Jose State and Sacramento State! My husband and I are new parents to a beautiful baby girl. We also have two cats (Maverick and Ava) and a dog (Sadie). My favorite teams are the 49ers, Giants, and Warriors! In my free time I enjoy playing sports, taking my dog on walks, camping, and traveling. I’m very proud to be here at Oakdale!
