Mr. David Hodgson

Greetings! Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We've had a strange coulple of years, but the learning must go on!

I teach Spanish and OT Literacy at the Upper Campus of Global Arts Plus. This year marks my 14th year at the school. I previously taught at Homecroft Elementary and before that I worked in New York City teaching middle school English Language Arts and social studies. 

In addition to being a staff member, I am also a proud GAP parent. This year I will have a student in 7th grade.

During my free time I enjoy reading, travel, long hikes and photography. 

I look forward to working with your scholars! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns as the year progresses.
