Dear Parents,

I am so excited to begin this new school year and look forward to meeting you and your children! My hope is that this year will be a great time filled with academics, social engagement, and fun.
To begin, I’d like to share a little about myself. I earned my master's degrees from Biola University (MA in Teaching and MS in Special Education) in 2020 and 2021. Additionally, I received a Bachelor's degree in Child Development and Family Studies from CSULB. Lastly, I have 6 years of substitute teaching experience (K-6) and taught 2nd grade last year at Tovashal. Teaching is my passion and I truly enjoy my job.
This year our class will focus on meeting grade level standards, creating life-long learners, and building character. My goal is to facilitate an atmosphere that feels like a home away from home. Some plans I have for this year include:
-Reading, writing, and math centers
-Number talks (math)
-Science experiments
-Go Noodle movement videos
-Character development
-Art projects
-SEL activities (and more!)
As part of the Tovashal team, we are committed to serving you and your children. I am expectant for all this new year will bring, and thrilled to partner with you on this educational journey. Welcome to the Tovashal family!
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I’d love to hear from you. Thank you in advance for an awesome year!
Ms. Hodges
