Amanda Dodson

Hello 2nd grade students and parents! My name is Amanda Dodson. I have recently joined the Ridgecrest family after living in Oklahoma for three years, before that, living in Hawaii, and several other different places. I am a military spouse and have one daughter who also attends Ridgecrest. I have been in education for 8 years, with my last teaching position being that of the 5th grade. I am ready for this new experience and can't wait to meet everyone. I am originally from Texas, I am not a Cowboys fan but definitely a Longhorns fan! 'Hook 'em!" I love spending time with my family, traveling, riding bikes and most importantly just being together. I am ready for a great year of learning and overcoming any obstacles that may try and get in our way. We are family and look forward to helping you grow!
