Mr. David Hodgson

Greetings! Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! We've had a strange couple of years, but the learning must go on!

I teach ELL and Spanish at the Upper Campus of Global Arts Plus. This year marks my 15th year at GAP-Upper. I previously taught at Homecroft Elementary and before that I worked in New York City teaching middle school English Language Arts and social studies. 

In addition to being a staff member, I am also a proud GAP parent. This year I will have a student in 8th grade.

During my free time, I enjoy reading, travel, long hikes and photography. 

I look forward to working with your scholars! Please feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns as the year progresses.


Middle school Spanish is the equivalent of first year high school Spanish spread out over two years. Students who complete both Spanish 1A and Spanish 1B will have the option to start with second year Spanish in 9th grade. 





The English Language Learner (ELL) and English Language Development (ELD) classes are here to support students who speak languages other than English.
