NIKKI HODSDON

At the beginning of Nikki’s teaching journey about 20 years ago, she completed her Bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies Elementary Education K-8 in 2000 from the Master’s University. Since then, she has gone back to school for almost 2 years completing the extra educational classes needed to update her degree. In addition to a Bachelor’s degree, Nikki has her Teaching online certification as well as CBEST and Praxis exams. Nikki has also completed a Spanish language study and TEFL certification.

 

Spending a dozen years teaching in overseas South American public schools English as a second language along with her family, this has prepared her with an incredible multi-cultural experience. Because of this experience, she will be able to bring those adventures into the ‘online’ classroom. Some of her work experience includes: QKids, Outschool, Wyzant, public and private school in person teaching as a lead teacher as well as online tutoring.

 

From Nikki Hodsdon: I am so grateful to Inspired Virtual for the opportunity to work in an environment that helps students to achieve their learning goals through critical and independent thinking. Their philosophy of teaching and learning is on par with my goals and philosophies.

 

I am located in California in the pacific time zone. I have three children of my own that have been in all sorts of learning modes: online, hybrid, brick and mortar, homeschool, and overseas private schools. I understand how unique and engaging and interactive online teaching can be. And I hope to provide that for your students! My areas of expertise include: Grammar, Reading, Creative Writing, Phonics, Comprehension, and Literature. Fun activities include: baking, arts and crafts, and educational games.
