I am Married to Calvin Hankins. We have a son Braden and a daughter Krista Johnson and a son-in-law Sean. We also have three grandchildren, Judson, Quinten and Nolen Johnson.
After being a legal secretary for many years, in 2003 I decided to go back to college to pursue my dream of being an early childhood teacher. I attended Ohio University where I earned several student grants and graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2006.
Since that time, I have been a preschool teacher for Lawrence County Early Childhood Academy in Ironton Ohio. I then continued my education and received a master’s degree in Teacher Leader. This is my third year being part of Ashland Independent Schools and love working with the children here at Ashland's Exceptional Early Childhood Center.
