Mrs. Ashley Rivers is a proud Iowa native. After receiving her degree in Elementary Education of the University of Northern Iowa, she spent 3 years substitute teaching in various school districts throughout the state. Needing a change of scenery, she made the leap to move to Los Angeles in early 2005.
Looking for a break from teaching, Mrs. Rivers fell into costuming in the entertainment industry creating costumes for theme parks, stunt shows, musicals, movies and music videos. It was a fun and exciting change, however after a few years, it was time for her to return to her passion; education.
Unsure if the classroom was the place she wanted to be, Mrs. Rivers decided her love for books would fuel the next phase of her career. In 2010, she received her master’s degree in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University. After a difficult job search, Mrs. Rivers joined the Providence High School community for the 2012-2013 school year. She truly believes she belongs here.
Mrs. Rivers had the opportunity to contribute to the design and fruition of the newly renovated Learning Commons.
In her free time, Mrs. Rivers loves to read (she is a librarian after all), travel, go to movies, and spend time with family and friends.
