About Mrs. Hodgson
Dear Parents and Students,
I am very eager to begin the 2016-17 school year here at Kyrene de la Estrella! Your child is a valued addition to our community of learners and I am dedicated to making this one of the most successful and positive years your child will experience.
Personally, I have many hobbies, such as sports, cooking, and traveling. I love to learn and explore the world around me! I love spending time with my husband and 6 month old son.
Professionally, I have my Bachelors degree in Elementary Education with an extensive background in science. This is my 7th year of teaching in Kyrene and I'm very excited to be job sharing with Dr. Cleveland this year. I love learning just as much as I love teaching!
I believe very strongly in a fair, well structured, and fun learning environment. Our classroom will be filled with hands-on learning, guided inquiry, risk- taking, and personal challenges to help each student reach their academic potential. We will also work on character education involving individual goals and lifeskills. I work together with my students to create a classroom community that promotes our school positive behavior plan: respect, responsibility, and safety.
Communication is key to our partnership this year, so I want to encourage you to call or email me with any concerns or questions. Together, we can help your child have a successful 4th grade year. I look forward to sharing this year with you!
Kyrene de la Estrella
4th Grade Teacher
