Hello! My name is Ally Passmore. I am a Springdale Arkansas native and have gone to Springdale Public schools all my life. I graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2015. I got married this past summer and just recently bought my first house in NWA. I have been teaching first and second grade at Parson Hills for the last five years. As soon as I stepped foot into Parson Hills, I knew I was in the right place. I love being part of such a warm, loving, and hard working environment at Parson Hills. Teaching is truly my calling in life. I believe that all students deserve a school that feels safe and welcoming each and every day. I strive to make all my students feel comfortable and free to be their true selves. I encourage my students to be bold, brave, creative, and compassionate. Above all, my goal at the end of each day is for my students to know that they are strong, smart, important and loved.
Hi! My name is Shelby McGraw. I am engaged to be married to my childhood friend and boyfriend of 5 years. I am from a small town down south called Stuttgart, Arkansas. I am a huge family person so I go visit them every chance I get. I am an aunt to two nieces and a nephew who I love with my whole heart. I graduated from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville in 2015 with my Masters in Arts of Teaching and Special Education endorsement. I am currently taking classes through the U of A to receive my ESL endorsement. This is my fifth year teaching at Parson Hills and I am currently a 1st grade teacher. Teaching has always been a passion of mine with the goal of being able to positively help young children. I strive to be a positive light for my students each day, making sure they know they’re strong, important, and loved! 👩🏼🏫❤️
