Jodi is a fun, kind person who takes the time to help students. Even some of the toughest students seem to do well in her class. Last year I had a student who did not want to work in any of his classes, but when given a choice he would always choose to do the work for Jodi's class. He chose to do the work for her class not because he loved health class, but because Jodi would make accomodations, and he felt valued. Jodi shows the students that she cares.
Jodi was one of the first teachers that I met at this school, and since our classrooms where next door to each other in what I call the social abyss. the 400 hall. Jodi made me feel welcomed. She was always there to help or listen. Even when I moved to the 100 hall she would take time to find out how I was doing. I concider Jodi a wonderful teacher, a confidant and a friend!
