Ashley Cirone, TREE Resource Coach


A Washington County native, Ashley attended Pine Manor College in Chestnut Hill, MA where she gained insight through working within numerous Boston Public Schools before earning her B.A. in Psychology with a concentration in Early Childhood Education. 

Upon moving back to Maine, Ashley spent time as a substitute teacher and educational technician before becoming a classroom teacher at Jonesport Elementary. During these experiences, she developed a special interest in finding new ways to help children struggling within the typical classroom environment. 

In 2013, Ashley earned her Master’s degree in Special Education and transitioned into Special Education Case Management where she taught within Resource Rooms at Jonesport Elementary and Narraguagus Jr. High School. She decided to leave the classroom to join the TREE team with hopes of further developing tools for creating supportive environments where all children and their families can thrive through strengthening partnerships with school and community. 

Ashley resides in Cherryfield, ME with her husband Brad Cirone, their children Anabella and Landon, and dogs Fenway and Faith.
