Samuel H. Dodson IV
My Name is Samuel H. Dodson IV and I am oh so many things. A Father to a wonderfully creative and joyous 4-year-old son. A husband of 14 years to a loving and supportive wife. A lifetime learner an artist, and a teacher of the craft for nearly 20 years. Art is a huge part of my life inside and outside of school, so I feel blessed to be able to share my passion and knowledge with the students here at DCI.
I graduated from Denison University in 1998 with a Bachelor’s Degree, and served as a founding member of the teaching staff at Hyde Leadership Public Charter School. After 8 years in the classroom, I took on more leadership opportunities with Higher Achievement as the Ward 6, and Kramer Achievement Centers for 10 years. Now, I am in my 3rd year at DCI teaching art, and feeling at home in this awesome community.
