About Mindy Hazel
My name is Mindy Hazel, I am the director of Milestones Learning Center of Ashland. My background has been in the educational field for over 10 years. I attended the University of Akron and graduated with my Bachelor’s of Science in Education, I was part of the National Scholars Honor Society and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma Sorority. I make my home in Wooster Ohio, I have 3 children and 2 dogs. My oldest son is in High School Band and Wrestling. My middle daughter enjoys gymnastics, and my youngest is an aspiring artist with her drawings and coloring. My two dogs are Molly and Daisy, they are rescue dogs from Summit County Animal Control. I taught 3rd grade for Hope Academy University in Akron for five years. I then moved over to Middlebury Prep Academy and taught 3rd grade for 2 ½ years. My teaching partner and I created an after school program for our students grades 3 to 8 called A New Way Project. This program offered students a chance to stay off the streets and become involved in a creative project, giving them opportunities to create, skits, music, art, poetry, spoken word and videography. Our students compiled their work into a show that was performed at the end of the school year.
My Experience in Toddler Care
After teaching for 7 years, I decided to try something new with daycare and preschool. I started working at ‘Round The Clock Child Care Center and became the office manager and curriculum director. I worked there for 2 years and then taught preschool through Head Start. I am so happy now to call Milestones Learning Center of Ashland my new home!
