Ms. Hodges - First Grade - Room 9

I have been committed to education in some capacity for over twenty years.  I began as a teacher’s assistant while pursuing my degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in education at San Diego State University.  I received my bilingual multiple subject teaching credential also at SDSU.  Since then I have taught an array of grades and subjects such as second grade, first grade, kindergarten, preschool, science, art, and drama as well as parent education.    This is my eighth year at Birney and my seventh year teaching first grade in Room 9. I am also the mother of two children, Cole and Emma.  Cole is a sophomore  at Cal State San Marcos, and Emma is a junior at Redondo Union High School.  I am thrilled to be a member of the Birney community and looking forward to a great year with my new first grade class.
