Early Grade Literacy Tip - Gin Hodge

There is simply no aspect of word-level reading that is unaffected by phonological skills. This deficit is far and away the most common reason children struggle in word-level reading.

NCCAT Early Grades Literacy Specialist Gin Hodge helps support teachers in incorporating early grades literacy learning into their instruction. Hodge has been honored as Buncombe County Teacher of the Year in 2002. Her experience includes teaching kindergarten (Jackson County), first grade (Rutherford), and third and fourth grades (Buncombe County). Hodge has been an instructional coach for ten years with Buncombe County. She received her undergraduate and graduate degree from Western Carolina University.
