Summer training for Hodge Elementary leadership

Georgia Southern’s College of Education (COE) is making sure that Sarah Mills Hodge Elementary School (Hodge) starts school with confidence this fall. Ten teachers from the Savannah school have been selected to participate in custom, grant-funded training and curriculum development this summer. The cohort will focus on incorporating new Georgia state standards for literacy and math with an emphasis on the first 9 weeks of the semester.

The training began June 12 with instructors from COE on-site at Hodge for a three-day workshop. The cohort will work virtually over several weeks before meeting back in July for another workshop. In addition to guidance and instruction over the summer, COE will provide ongoing support during the school year.

The training is made possible by a $10,000 grant from the Georgia Power Foundation awarded to COE. COE faculty participants are Jarvis Jackson Ph.D., Anne Valauri Ph.D. and Alesia Moldavan, Ph.D. All three teach Elementary and Special Education on the Armstrong Campus.
