Associates Degree from Elgin College
Ms. Cathy Dodd
I am thrilled to be a part of the Oakview Family! I am originally from Chicago and moved to North Carolina 15 years ago. I have an Associates Degree from Elgin College and worked as a reading specialist in Illinois. For the past 14 years I have worked in multiple special needs classes at Salem Elementary, 12 years in CCK and the last 2 in AU-1. I have four amazing children. Amy, 29 is a college basketball coach in Alabama. Katy, 27 is in her second year of Residency practicing family medicine at Cone Hospital in Greensboro. Her twin Kelly is a Special Education teacher in Wilmington. Andrew, 23 is a recent graduate of UNC and works in a management position. I am blessed to be called "Grammy" by the sweetest two year old, my grandson, Isaac. I truly love working with children with special needs. I enjoy identifying strategies that help them learn as well as making them smile and laugh. When I am not working, I love to ride my bike, walk my two fur babies, Ty and Toby, and experiment in the kitchen with new recipes. I am looking forward to an #owlsome year at Oakview Elementary!
