Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Ashley Clift and I am so excited to be the assistant band director here at Baines!
I graduated form Fort Bend ISD in 2004. After graduation I went to Texas Tech University in Lubbock (Go Red Raiders!) After college I went on to teach in Pearland ISD for 12 years; I ma currently in my 13th year of teaching. My primary instrument is clarinet, although I have experience teaching all band instruments. I currently live in Sienna with my husband, who is a band director at Hightower High School, our two children, Brooke and Max, and our three cats.
I am passionate about teaching music to young people and believe that band teaches valuable life skills. As a Fort Bend ISD graduate I am looking forward to continuing the tradition of amazing fine arts programs and wildly successful students!
