      Welcome Back Dolphins!!
I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer with family and friends.  I am very excited for the upcoming school year here at Dobson Academy!  I cannot wait to see everyone on August 1st for the first day of our 2019-2020 school year.  
 
I am looking forward to a wonderful and productive year here at Dobson Academy with your child!
It is my belief that every student has the right to develop socially and become a proficient reader, writer, and mathematician. I believe in teaching to all levels and will always differentiate in the classroom. I will strive to make my classroom a place where students enjoy learning and feel safe.

Teaching is my passion! I am proud to say that I have been in Education for the past 19 years, with a little bit of time off to raise my own children.  I am originally from Ohio, where I earned my Bachelor of Science in Education from Kent State University.  I decided to make Arizona my home 12 years ago. I have two amazing children that I am extremely proud of. My son is a sophomore at Highland High School where he plays football. My daughter is 11 and on a competitive gymnastics team. I know all about busy after school schedules!!

I love my job and look forward to coming to work every day. Your child’s education and personal well-being are very important to me. I believe that communication is key. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns by e-mail at crood@ballcharterschools.org or by calling me at ext. 104.
