Mrs. Diane Dodge
Hi from Mrs. Dodge! Here is a little news about myself. I grew up in North Carolina in a big military family. I went to Elon University in Burlington, North Carolina. I have a Master's degree from East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina. I have taught Kindergarten, first, second and third grade! My teacher career has spanned the state of North Carolina all the way to Mannheim, Germany and back to Quantico, Virginia and now here in Stafford County. I have taught for 25 years and still love teaching! I am married to a retired Marine and we have 2 lovely daughters, Courtney and Kendall. They are the loves of my life! I am also a dog lover and I have Jake and Kerchak(Courtney's big dog) that give me unconditional love on a daily basis. I love the beach and spend my summers in Emerald Isle, North Carolina. I love to read for pleasure and I spend my summers learning all sorts of new teacher stuff! I love to travel and see new places. Most of all, I love coming to school each day knowing that I can indeed make the difference in the life of a child. I try to inspire, encourage, and share the love of learning with all my students. I create a very caring, respectful classroom where all students are safe to communicate, collaborate and take risks! My classroom is a place that is always open to visitors. I feel lucky to have your children in my class this year and look forward to a year of learning!
