My name is Ashley Gough. I am originally from Pelahatchie and graduated from East Rankin Academy. I then attended Mississippi State, where I completed my Bachelor's degree in Secondary English Education...Go Dawgs!! I taught one year in West Point before going back to school to complete my Master's degree in Secondary English Education. I then moved back to Rankin County and continued teaching. I taught at Pelahatchie High School for 8 years and completed my Education Specialists degree from MSU during this time as well. This will be my 12th year teaching and my 3rd at Pearl High School. I will be teaching Accelerated English I and English II. I will also be coaching tennis, serving as co-sponsor of the Beta Club, and acting as 10th grade sponsor. My husband, Justin, is also part of the Pirate family and is teaching at the junior high; we have one daughter, Emory. If there is ever anything that I can do to help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
