Welcome My name is Ashley Drewery. Please allow me to tell you a little about myself.

I am a 2000 graduate of South Panola High School in Batesville, Mississippi. After graduation I attended Delta State University in Cleveland, Mississippi and graduated with honors in 2004. I began my teaching career at Batesville Middle School where I taught fifth grade for four years . In 2009 I got married and moved to Southaven, where I joined the wonderful Southaven Intermediate School staff. There I taught third grade for one year and then returned to fifth grade for 6 years. I was super excited to make the move to Southaven Elementary School in 2015 to become your librarian.

My husband, Justin, and I have two children, Waylon 9 and Karsyn 4. Waylon is in 4th grade and Karsyn loves going to PreK with all of her friends. I enjoy the smell of new books, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family.  

“Everyone is a reader… some just haven’t found their favorite book yet.”

 

Southaven Elementary Library Media Center's vision is to become a 21st Century environment that promotes learning in all students grades kindergarten through five by being a fun, safe, productive place to read, write, research, and create.

The mission of Southaven Elementary School Library Media Center is to provide our students and teachers with a text, resource, and technological rich learning environment that will spark creativity, foster a love of reading, promote research skills, and aid in implementation of the Mississippi College and Career Ready standards.

 

 Southaven Elementary School Library Media Center Goals:

  • Students will learn to venture out and read a variety of different texts.
  • The SES library media center will be a safe haven for students and teachers to research and select texts.
  • Students will be provided with a plethora of book genres to encourage the development of life-long reading.
  • The SES library will provide a wide range of resources for teachers to grow and expand their lessons.
  • Students will be encouraged to read, write, and research on topics they enjoy.
  • The library will become a favorite place for our young readers to expand their growing knowledge.
