Ashley de Lima

Assistant Principal of LiFT Academy

I graduated from Cairn University as a certified teacher with a bachelor's in Bible, a bachelor's in Secondary Education (English), a TESOL certificate, and a master's in Education. After graduating I headed overseas to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where I taught English and Writing Skills to grades 6-12 at an international school for two years. While teaching at the school I met my (now) husband, and we decided to move back to the U.S and get married. I taught English at a middle school in Maryland before moving down to Florida. I started working at LiFT by helping out Ms. Nikki and the Lift U program. This year, I am teaching U.S History and am one of the assistant principals.

My husband and I had our first child, Theo, in March of 2016! I enjoy cuddling with my husband and baby, reading, and lifting.
