Odetta Ellington » Bio


My name is Odetta Ellington; and I was born and raised by both parents, along with my siblings, in Youngstown, Ohio.


In 2005, I attended and graduated Magna Cum Lade from Central State University in Wilberforce, OH, with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration.


My husband and I, along with our three daughters, moved to Nashville, TN in 2004.  While in   Nashville,  I received my Master of Science Degree in Guidance and Counseling from Tennessee State University in 2009.  I also completed my coursework to obtain an Educational Specialist Degree.


My school counseling career began in 2008 in Unionville, TN  at Community Elementary School.  I have experience in elementary, middle, and high school guidance in Bedford, Wilson, and Metro Nashville Public Schools.


I enjoy what I do and excited to serve the families in the community.  Educating our youth is not my job, it is my passion.
