Ms. Hodge is an amazing teacher here at Cope. She is also a great artist, she paints a pumpkin in her free time. Ms. Hodge found her love for painting pumpkins when she found a black pumpkin and painted it for her fiance. Last year she painted about 96 pumpkins. She finds it very relaxing to paint these pumpkins, some of her pumpkins can even take five hours. Other hobbies that Ms. Hodge has are scrapbooking and going to sports events. Ms. Hodge is not only a great teacher but also a great artist, we cannot wait to see more pumpkins from her.
