Mrs. Ashley Coward
Hi there! My name is Ashley Coward and I am the Media Coordinator & Instructional Technology Leader at Southside High School. I am starting my seventh year here and I absolutely love working here. Our school is a fantastic family who supports everyone who enters our doors.
I began my teaching career in Pitt County working as a World Languages teacher, teaching American Sign Language. I enjoyed teaching, but my aspirations of becoming a librarian were strong. It has been a passion of mine since I was very young. I made the jump into the library in 2014 when I was hired at John Small School. As much as I enjoyed the library, I longed to be back in a high school and I was blessed to move to Southside.
In addition to being an educator, I am a wife and mother. I have been married for 12 years and my husband and I have two beautiful children. We love getting the chance to spend time together.
Welcome to Southside, where we SOAR together toward a common goal!
