• My name is Katie Dodds and this is my 3rd year teaching 5th Grade at Hillcrest Elementary. I was born in San Antonio, TX but have spent more than half of my life here in NC. I attended UNC Wilmington where I earned my Bachelors in Marine Biology and then my Masters in Elementary Education. I am a dog person (I have two large fur babies) and love spending time outside. I look forward to getting to know your students this year.
