I am now in my third year at Southbroom Infants' School and can be found teaching the Squirrels Class. I am the subject leader for computing and love finding new technologies to explore with the children.

Hello! I am Mrs Hodsdon and I currently teach the Foxes class. I love teaching at Southbroom Infants School and believe that children truly learn best through imaginative play and exploration.
