5th Grade

 [email protected] My name is Mrs. Hodge, and I am thrilled to be teaching 5th grade Science this school year. This will be my 9th year at SME, and I’m embarking on my 22nd year in education! I was born and raised in Texas, and I graduated from Texas Tech University in 2001. I started teaching right out of college. I taught 4th grade for three years in Texas, and then moved to Colorado in 2005, and where I taught 3rd grade until 2021. I'm excited to be back in 5th grade. My husband and I have 4 children: Jack (15), Luci (13), Maggie (10), and Major (2). We love to watch sports, cook, go hiking, and have quality time with our family!

Hi, I'm Misty Rhodes! This will be my fifth year as a Stone Mountain Cub! I teach 5th grade Math. My favorite part of teaching is building relationships with my awesome students. I especially love watching them grow with confidence as they discover their passions!
 [email protected]  Hello SME community! My name is Jen Wilde and I could not be happier to join the SME family as the 5th grade literacy teacher! I grew up in Iowa and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa. After college, I headed west to Colorado. I taught for 11 years in DCSD in 4th, 5th and 6th grades before spending some bonus time at home with my children. Once they were all in school full time, I decided to get back in the classroom and have substitute taught for the past year. Being in the classroom made me miss having my own class and getting to build relationships with my students. I knew it was time to get back into my own classroom when the opportunity to join SME greeted me. When, I am not in the classroom, you'll find me spending time with my husband, Adam and our three on-the-go children Spencer(13), Nolan(10) and Adalynn(6). We enjoy watching them be a part of all the activities they enjoy. In my free time, I enjoy exercising, spending time with my family and friends, being outdoors, exploring Colorado, traveling when time allows, and reading.
