Ms. Hodson is ecstatic to join the Equitas team as a first grade teacher. While growing up, she attended the same K-8 school where her mother taught preschool which made school Ms. Hodson’s second home. After completing her undergraduate degree, Ms. Hodson immediately accepted a Teacher Assistant position at the same preschool she attended. It was here that Ms. Hodson realized she had a calling for teaching. Ms. Hodson made the decision to move to Los Angeles and continue her education at Loyola Marymount University where she earned a Master’s Degree in Elementary Education and her Multiple Subject Teaching Credential. Ms. Hodson has most recently been substitute teaching in the Redondo Beach and Torrance Unified School Districts. Ms. Hodson is excited to continue her teaching journey at Equitas Academy and to serve the Pico-Union community. She believes in the importance of creating a community of learners that take risks and grow together to help everyone achieve. In her spare time Ms. Hodson loves to take pictures with her camera, spend time with her family, and exercise.
