Hello and welcome to River Valley School.  I am excited to be working with your child this year.  Third grade will be a year of exciting exploration and fun filled adventures.

            My name is Laura Hodge and this is my 18th year of teaching in Lemont.  Prior to teaching in Illinois, I was a teacher in Colorado for several years.  I earned my bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Purdue University and a master’s degree in the area of Reading Instruction from the University of St. Francis.
