Mrs. Ashley

I am a native of McDowell County. I graduated from McDowell High in 2001. I then moved to Greensboro, where I graduated from UNCG in 2005 with a degree in Elementary Education. In 2010 I received my Masters degree in Library Science from ECU. 

I live in Sugar Hill with my husband, Chris, and our three sons, Cutter, Maverick and Ryder. We also have one family pet, a dog named Sarah. I am very close to my family and enjoy spending as much time with them as I can. I have one sister (Autumn), who lives in Marion, as well. She and my brother-in-law (Brian) have two sons (my wonderful nephews) that I absolutely adore. All together I have 8 nephews, and 7 nieces. I love to read and hope to pass this along to all of my students. I also love to do photography.

I am very excited about the upcoming year. This is my sixth year as a media coordinator, and it is a goal I worked towards for several years! I am thankful that I was put in a media coordinator position at West Marion since I love my West Marion family! I will be in charge of Battle of the Books this year and will be having several library events. We will have two-three book fairs this year to try to earn money to buy new books for our collection. 

I believe that if we work together, we can make this year a great one, for all of us! I can't wait to work with all of the students this year. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about the library or about resources that we can provide for you and your child!
