Dave has been working in boarding schools since graduating from college but he has had a long involvement with Vermont Academy. He spent three years here as a boarding student, graduating in 1989, and he also worked at the school from 1996-2002 as a Spanish teacher. He returned to the Academy in 2007 as Dean of Residential Life and took over at the Admissions helm in the summer of 2011. He loves the fact that the boarding school environment gives him the opportunity to work with students in all areas of their lives and not just the classroom. He coaches lacrosse and alpine skiing and enjoys spending his free time snowshoeing on the fabulous Vermont Academy Nordic trails, hiking, golfing and hanging out with his family. Mr. Hodgson lives in West Hill dormitory with his wife, Amanda, and children, Maggie and Charlie.
