Welcome back to the FCS Classroom!
Welcome back Midgets! I am excited to start a new school year in the FCS classroom. Before I explain my 2013-2014 schedule, I thought I would provide some of my history. It all started for me right here in Putnam County. I was born and raised by Tim and Barb Hodges, who are also Putnam County alumni. After graduating in 2007 from Putnam County, I attended Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Missouri. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in Family and Consumer Sciences Education in 2010. I also graduated with my Masters in Educational Leadership from Northwest in 2011.
I was hired as a teacher at Putnam County in the fall of 2010 and have been teaching here for the last three years. I teach various subjects related to Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) in the High School and Middle School buildings. My extra-curricular duties include coaching varsity football and basketball cheerleading as well as advising our local FCCLA chapter. I currently live north of Unionville with my husband Clint Stobbe, originally from Eagleville, Missouri, who is employed with Murphy-Brown Missouri.
I always hoped I would have the opportunity to return to the school that provided me with an excellent education, athletic, and extracurricular opportunities that have molded me into the teacher I am today. I believe that learning is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. How open you are to learning will help determine your path in life. Learning can be hard and frustrating at times; it can also be incredibly exciting and enriching. I look forward to conquering the struggles and celebrating the growth that students and teachers make this year at Putnam County!
