Mrs. Melissa Dodge

Hi! I am Mrs. Dodge and I have taught for 17 years. I spent 15 years in 1st grade and one year in 5th grade. I just began my 17th year in the position of the district's Student Support Service Provider. I am blessed to be working with our elementary students. I am happy to support students in whatever capacity I am able. The following is an example of ways I interact with students: 

Classroom Lessons:

I visit each classroom on each of the elementary campuses several times each quarter.  This allows me the opportunity to interact with students during an average 30 minute lesson.  Lessons typically focus on social-emotional learning such as mindfulness, understanding emotions of self and others, relationship skills and problem solving skills. 

Small Group Support: 

Small group support is offered to students who may need extra support in social-emotional skills, as well as ways to cope with various life situations.  Group size tends to be 3-6 students.  

Individual Support:

I am available to students who require one-on-one support for grief, social, emotional, or academic challenges. 

 

How to Contact Mrs. Dodge:

I split my days between all three elementary schools. If you need to get in touch with me, please call 928-348-6983 or email me at mdodge@saffordusd.com. I will get emails or phone calls, no matter which school I am scheduled to be at for the day.
