Hello! My name is Ms. Dodson and I teach 5th grade Science and Social Studies at Valley Ranch Elementary School. I'm very excited for my second year here and to meet this year's Wranglers!
My husband and I have two daughters. Our oldest is in her second year of middle school and our youngest is in first grade. We also have a pound puppy named Coachella who truly is the best dog! Our newest addition is a kitten named Pepper...she's fun!
This is my twelfth year teaching Science and I'm looking forward to working with your children as they aim to reach their goals! Each and every lesson is carefully planned with our students and learning goals in mind. Please encourage your children to be prepared with the appropriate materials and, most importantly, to participate fully during class.
Parent and teacher communication is a critical component for student success. In addition to the contact information found here, we will use Class Dojo. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Let's work together to make this a great year!
