Donna Eastham is originally from Ohio and has been in the state of Kentucky since 1982. She entered into the field of Early Childhood by accident, she was a student in the nursing program at EKU and took an Infant and Toddler development course as an elective and fell in love with the idea of understanding a child’s development, the theory behind it and how our home and school environments can impact a child’s growth and development in the later years. Donna still finds the field fascinating and full of learning.
Donna has taught in the field of early childhood at different capacities since 1987 in the state of Kentucky. Donna has taught in private non-profit programs, public preschool programs and the First Steps program. Donna has taught at Eastern Kentucky University and currently teaches at Somerset Community college in the IECE program.
