Welcome to Third Grade at Cornerstone Elementary!
My name is Meryll Hodson. I was born in Llano, Texas, and I graduated college from the University of Texas at Austin in 2009 with a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies with a minor in English as a Second Language. I am EC-4 certified as well as ESL certified and GT certified. I am married to my best friend, Ryan. He is a senior English teacher and head golf coach at Austin High School. We have a two boys, Brooks and Barrett. Brooks is going into Kindergarten this fall and Barrett will be three in December. We also have a sweet dog named Abby. I am sure you will hear a bunch of stories about my dear family throughout the year.
I taught first grade for six years, second grade for two years and this will be my third year teaching third grade. I always knew I wanted to become an educator and teach young children. The desire and passion to teach, and help others, has only grown throughout my years of teaching.
When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching sporting events, and traveling. I love watching the Houston Astros and the Texas Longhorns.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
