Mrs. Denise Dodd

Welcome to learning in First Grade!  I was born and grew up in Colorado, but have lived in Illinois for almost half of my life.  I love being outdoors (especially in the mountains), spending time with my family (my husband and 4 kids) and teaching 1st grade!  I graduated with my Bachelor's of Science from Brigham Young University in Elementary Education and in 2010 graduated with my Master's degree from Erikson Institute in Early Childhood Education.  I have taught 1st grade at Jamie McGee since 2014, but previously worked at Tibbott Elementary, Pioneer Elementary and the Valley View Early Childhood Center.
