Dear Dodd Families, 

I am truly honored to lead the Dodd staff in providing a comprehensive and individualized education for your child.  Our school community strives to create a supportive environment for all students as we teach them the skills they need to be successful in all aspects of their lives.  As a staff, we believe in a strong home-school connection so our students can meet the many challenges ahead of them as they move toward high school graduation and beyond.   We are continually growing and strengthening our connection with our families and community.

At Dodd, we honor character, academic achievement and growth.

The Dodd team is a strong, student-centered group of professionals and community members and together, with shared core beliefs,  values and vision, we will  make a positive impact in the lives of our children.
