• Welcome everyone!  My name is Ashiya Pashen and I am the counselor at Duchesne Primary School.  I've been a part of the Ferguson Florissant School District and specifically with Duchesne Primary since 2008.  I was born and raised in St. Louis and attended school in the Saint Louis Public School District.  Sometime after graduating high school I left home to join the United States Air Force and worked in that service until 1988.  After leaving service I moved to Arizona, went back to school, and earned my bachelor degree in elementary education.  A few years later I earned my master degree in educational counseling.  After 20 years living away from my home state I moved back to be closer to my family.  I am happy to be part of the Ferguson Florissant community and look forward to working with you and your child.

    Each school year all students are given guidance on anti-bullying and safe touch (sexual harassment).  In addition, I focus on building and maintaining healthy relationships and anger management.  A few times throughout the year different agencies will present lessons that focus on friendship skills.

    Please contact me regarding social/emotional, academic, or behavioral concerns you have regarding your child.  We offer therapeutic services through various programs: CHADS, Pinocchio, Great Circle, and District Social Worker.  Also speak with me regarding referrals for Special School District, Probe , and 504 plans.  

    For more information or to answer your questions please email me at apashen@fergflor.org or call Duchesne Primary at (314) 831-1911.
