Welcome to English 1

 Welcome to an unprecedented school year at OBHS! Every year is special, but we are taking on a hybrid of online and in-person learning this year for the first time. Whether you are a VIP learner or an in-person learner, you are an essential part of our school community. We need you!

As a freshman, you have a unique opportunity to make a fresh start this year. Make it a year full of discovery, hard work, growth, and fun, so that you have a strong foundation for the rest of your high school career.

Please contact me any time via email or Schoology messaging. I want to help you be successful. Keeping in close communication, whether online or in person, is the best way to make that happen.

I am looking forward to an amazing school year!


With Quistor Pride,


Mrs. Ashley

About the Teacher

I have a Bachelor's Degree in English Literature, History, and Psychology from the University of Mississippi. Currently, I am working toward a Master's Degree in Secondary Education at Mississippi State University. I am highly qualified in MS to teach high school English and social studies, as well as special education.

This is my 3rd year teaching 9th grade English at OBHS, and it is my 15th year with DeSoto County Schools. During my 15 years, I have held several positions in DeSoto County Schools, across multiple grade levels. Teaching high school English is truly my dream job. I love teaching here at OBHS!

Though I'm a native of Spring Hill, TN, I consider OB my home; I've lived in MS for over 20 years. My husband and I  have two college age sons, Drew and Eli. Drew is a junior at the University of Montevallo in Alablama, where he is majoring in mathematics and runs for the men's cross country and track teams. Eli just graduated from OBHS with the quarantined class of 2020 and will be attending Northwest CC, where he is majoring in communications and playing football for the Rangers.  During quarantine, my hobby has been cooking for and feeding all the men in my family! It has been quite an undertaking; young, athletic men are ALWAYS hungry! As a family, we love boating at the lake, sports of all sorts, and we love to travel together.
