Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Dodson

While, in an official sense, I am known as Mr. Dodson, students often call me Mr. D or, my personal favorite, Mr. Nosdod.

Although I was born and raised right here in beautiful Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, I am a city boy at heart and just can’t get enough of that amazing New York City atmosphere. There's just somethng about "the big city" that draws me in. 

As far as what keeps me busy outside of the classroom, I enjoy playing tennis, golfing, writing (it doesn't matter what, I just want to keep writing!), reading, going to concerts, gaming (both video games and board games), and grabbing a good meal with friends on the weekends. 

I appreciate and take advantage of any opportunity I get to relate my interests to my students' interests. It's important to be engaged in and passionate about what you are studying, so my plan is to try and make that happen each and every day.
