Southaven High School: About The School



This is my 11th year as a 3rd grade teacher at SIS! :)




A little about me.....

My name is Ashley Parbs, and I was born in Memphis Tennessee. I grew up in Olive Branch and Southaven, MS. I attended Hope Sullivan Elementary, Southaven Middle School, and graduated from Southaven High School in 2003. I was the child who LOVED going to school each day and loved starting a new year with a new teacher and a new set of friends. Some of my favorite people were my teachers, and I guess that's why I became one. To be a light for a child means more to me than anything!

After graduating from high school, I was accepted into the University of Mississippi in Oxford, MS. After two years at the Oxford Campus, I decided to come back home and attend the Ole Miss DeSoto Center. I was able to be with friends and family plus I lived FREE with my parents! I graduated with my teaching degree in 2008.

After I graduated college, I was hired as a third grade teacher. This is my eleventh year teaching at SIS. Southaven Intermediate is a great school with a fabulous staff...I am so blessed to be teaching here. I decided July of 2016 to begin my journey towards a Master's degree through the Arkansas State online program and recently graduated in August with honors. I love being a life-long learner!

My family means the world to me! I don't know what I would do without my adorable girl and handsome little boy. Katelyn is eleven and is growing into a caring young lady!! She can make me laugh even after the longest, craziest days!! She is my motor that keeps me going!! Kobe is my spastic eight year old, and he is such a fun little guy that has such a sweet heart!! I have my hands full, but I wouldn't change ANYTHING!!!

I get really excited about teaching and learning, so get ready for a fun filled year!! I can't wait!!!
