Caroline Dodd has been teaching at Hope Christian Academy since 2010. She has had a passion for working with people with special needs for as long as she can remember. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Appalachian State University in teaching students with learning disabilities. Upon graduating from ASU, she taught English in Amozoc, Mexico to elementary and middle school students. Since returning to the states she has taught in private and public schools, instructing students in regular and special education.
In 2020 Mrs. Dodd took on the role of Director in addition to her teaching duties. She is helping with the transition of Hope to a partnership with Grace Christian School, and looks forward to the future of Hope at Grace.
Mrs. Dodd is married to Greg, and has a son, Gordon. She and her family love to travel, especially to the beach. She also enjoys teaching Sunday School with her husband. They currently teach a class for young engaged and newly married couples. Not only does she sense God using her at church, but her prayer is for God to use her to prepare her students for the future. She strives to get her older students ready for life after high school. In her transition class students earn paychecks paying bills, keeping checkbooks, and making real-life decisions. High school students are also participating in volunteer internships throughout the community. Mrs. Dodd helps her students to prepare for whatever God wants them to do.
