My name is Sarah Dodge and I have lived in the area for most of my life. I graduated from Benzie Central and continued my education at Michigan State University. At MSU, I earned a bachelor of science in child development/elementary, and language arts. After graduation, I returned to Northern Michigan and have taught the lower elementary grades for Benzie Central Schools ever since. I have earned a Masters Degree in the Art of Teaching Reading from Marygrove College and am particular interested in the effects of development on school readiness.
