Tonya Hurlbert

A little about me...

My name is Tonya Hurlbert and I am a native of Jacksonville, Florida! I am a single mom of a beautiful, 4 year old little boy! We love spending time outside especially in the spring and summer where you can find us at the pool or beach every weekend!

I am pursuing my Bachelor's Degree in Child Development here at Ashford. I had completed most coursework for Elementary Education but due to falling in love with my job, I decided to pursue a career in Early Childhood Education. I began as a Pre-K teacher at Primrose School in 2006 and became the Curriculum Coordinator in 2007 then the Assistant Director in 2009 and have been the Director since November 2013! This is my 3rd class here with Ashford University but I lost count of college courses and professional development courses. My love for young children and my passion for positive relationships helps me succeed at what I do day in and day out!

After graduation of Ashford, I plan to continue my career with Primrose Schools, just with more resources and knowledge than I have today!
