I am proud to announce that there will be an exciting addition to the connections program at Dodgen when school begins this fall. The theatre/drama/speech curriculum will be available for students in all grades during the school day. Maria Karres-Williams has accepted the challenge of teaching in this newly created position, as well as coordinating/directing the great tradition at Dodgen known as the Spring Production. Maria brings with her several successful years of middle school theatre teaching experience. She moved to Georgia from North Carolina with her husband two years ago.
