• Welcome to Mrs. Luchsinger's First Grade Class website. My name is Ashley Luchsinger and this is my second year teaching at Southwest Elementary and my 9th year teaching overall. In the past, I have taught 4K and Kindergarten and taught in New York City as well as Columbia, South Carolina. This is my fourth year teaching first grade, and I absolutely love it. During my free time, I enjoy traveling, spending time with my husband, Alex and one year old son, Luke, cooking, going outdoors, and trying new things.
