Dr. Angie Hood
Hello! My name is Angie Hood and I am the School Counselor at Ashland Ridge. I began my educational career in 1992 as a 3rd grade teacher, and I have also taught kindergarten and 1st grade. After several years as a classroom teacher, I earned my Masters in Counseling at Iowa State University, and have been a K-5 school counselor for over fifteen years. I have worked in Ankeny for the past ten years. During my time as a counselor, I decided to further my education and attained my Principal Licensure from Iowa State University. Being a life-long learner, I also completed my Educational Leadership doctorate through Drake University in Des Moines.
I truly believe I have the best job at Ashland Ridge! I love being a counselor and helping the children on their educational, social, and personal journeys, truly makes my day. The kids are the reason I am so excited to come to work everyday!
When I am not at school, I am with my family. You can usually find us at the ball fields or enjoying our time outside.
I invite you to call me or send me an email. I welcome the opportunity to partner with you to strengthen your child's academic and emotional success!
