B.A. in Elementary Education

Mrs. Kristen Dodson

My name is Mrs. Dodson and I am so excited to begin my second year at Jackson School. This will be my 6th year teaching and teaching is a true passion of mine. I have my Bachelor's in Elementary Education from USC. 

I truly love watching your children grow and mature. It is the BEST part of my job. I am passionate about teaching reading and about growing a love for reading that will, hopefully, last a lifetime. I also believe in creating a classroom family where children feel comfortable growing and learning and becoming their own identity. 

My interests outside of school include swimming, reading, and being a mommy to my 2 little ones. My son, Michael is 4, and my daughter, Ava Grace, will be 3 in August. I have been happily married to my husband for 7 years, whose military career brought us here to SC from Orlando, FL.
