About Us


Jennie Hodges (small)

Hi! I am Jennie Hodges (dubbed the "small" one). I have been at Orange Grove since I received my Master's in Teaching in 2000! I have taught 5th, 3rd, and now here I am in 2nd. "Tall" Mrs. Hodges and I have been teaching together for 9 years now! We have been friends for many, many years; I feel so lucky to have her as my job-share buddy!

I have three children, ages 13, 10, and 6; two boys and a girl! We live in Mount Pleasant. I love teaching and I love kids! I am so happy to be a part of the Orange Grove family.  Tall Mrs. Hodges and I are so excited to have your children in our class!!


Jenn Hodges (tall)

Hello! I am Jenn Hodges (dubbed the "tall" one). I have been at the Grove for the past 11 years after my husband and I moved back east from California. I started off teaching a combination first and second grade class for two years, taught many years in 3rd, and now we're loving second grade!

I have three children of my own. Alex is 9, Zoe is 6, and Wyatt, the newest Hodges, is almost 6 months. We also live in Mount Pleasant and I absolutely love teaching at Orange Grove.
