About Mrs. Hood


 
I attended Gustavus Adolphus College for my B.A. degree, and then I went to UW-Stout and simultaneously completed two programs to obtain both my Ed.S. degree in school psychology and MS.Ed. in school counseling.   I started my career as a 7th-9th grade school counselor and school psychologist in Pine City, MN.  After my husband, Drew, and I moved to Mankato, I worked for a few years in another dual role in Mankato Area Public Schools as an assessment specialist and school psychologist.  In 2013 I jumped at the opportunity to work as an elementary school counselor, and I served both Washington and Eagle Lake Elementary schools for 3 years.  For the 2016-17 school year I will be at Kennedy and Washington Elementary Schools.  My husband and I have two loving children, Lauren (2 1/2) and Gabe (11 months). When I am not at work, you will find me spending time and doing activities with my family.
