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.
