Meet Our Director

My name is Damonica Huggins,
I'm originally from Indianapolis Indiana, my family and I relocated to Akron Ohio 19 years ago. Within the 19 years of being in Ohio I've made some great achievements I received a master's degree in Christian Psychology & Christian Counseling, and I received my CDA (Child Development Associate).

I have experience in all age groups I have 4 children of my own and 5 grandchildren that keep me on my toes.

I have been in Early childhood Education for over 20 + years, during my career, I have worked in Indianapolis, and Ohio as an Assistant Director.  I've been with Brightside for four years now I started out as a Lead Toddler Teacher from there I advanced to the Lead Preschool 1 Teacher, I also severed as Infant 1 lead Teacher while in Infant 1 I decided to take Child Development Associate courses which I completed in less than a year. In 2018 I took on the roll as a Program Lead Teacher and I believe that was the push that I needed to stay with Brightside Academy and take on more challenges.  Now I'm in another position still at the same location (Frederick)  so far this experience has been GOOD!
