My name is DeShanka Hood. I was born and raised in Gretna, Louisiana.  I relocated to Texas during Hurricane Katrina.  I’m the mother of two daughters, Destiny and Makayla.  Destiny is a senior at Prairie View A&M University and Makayla is a Freshman at Sam Houston State University.  I’ve been working with children for 22 years from ages birth to 21 years old.  I’ve worked in all types of settings: daycares, group homes, church nurseries, schools, private in-home babysitting, and service as a nanny. I have an Associate of Arts degree in Elementary Education and I have 5 classes left to obtain my bachelor’s degree in Psychology.  In my spare time. I enjoy reading self-help books, designing things with my cameo silhouette, making gift baskets, and finding new things to bake.
