My name is Ashley Hood and I am from Wellston, OH. My early childhood education career began in 2010 when I was hired with Scioto County Head Start as an aide. I really enjoyed my position and I decided I wanted to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education. In 2012, I received my Associate’s Degree from Shawnee State University. I then went back to Head Start and taught for 3 1/2 years as a preschool teacher.
During my last year with Head Start, I had the privilege to teach as an infant/toddler teacher within Early Head Start and I absolutely loved it! There is just something very special about the simplistic nature of teaching young children. During this time, I was able to complete my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education from The University of Cincinnati. I began teaching at the Children’s Learning Center in 2017 and am looking forward to working with your child.
