5th Grade Math

        The Incredible Ms Dodson!
    Welcome to FIFTH grade!  I'm so glad you are a part of our year full of learning and fun!  I am beginning my 6th year  in the Catalina Foothills, but my 31st year teaching.  I started teaching at Sunrise Drive in 1986 and then opened Canyon View in 1987.  I left in 1990 to teach in several other states.  In 2008, I returned to my beloved Arizona and taught and lived in Sahuarita to be close to my parents in Green Valley.  After 6 years, my parents and I decided we wanted to move back to Tucson, so I was fortunate enough to get a position here at VVE!.
    When I am not teaching your children, I can be found running (I am the person running up and down Sunrise Drive at 4:45 with a head lamp and red blinking light), biking all around Tucson, and swimming LOTS of laps!  You've probably figured out that I am a triathlete.  Teach, swim, bike, run, repeat!
