• About Mrs. Harris, Mrs. Hough, and

    Ms. Childs

         This will be my 16th year of teaching students with autism and intellectual disabilities here at Hickory Flat.  I was a paraprofessional in a classroom for students with severe and profound intellectual disabilities for a year before I was a teacher.  I have also worked at a preschool.  Before I was in the education field, I worked as a foster care social worker at DFCS.
         I went to Eagle's Landing High School here in Henry County.  I got my bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Georgia.  I have a master's degree in education with a concentration in multiple and severe disabilities from Georgia State University. 
         I have lived in Georgia all my life.  I am married and have a 9 year old son who is in 4th grade this year at HFE.  I also have a 13 year old son that attends UGMS .  We have one dog and fish.  
         I love to be constantly going and doing things with friends and family.  Traveling is one of our favorite things.  I also enjoy camping, hiking, outdoor festivals, shopping, attending sporting events(especially UGA football and Braves games), going to concerts and other performances, and spending time with friends and family.
         I love working with children with autism.  It is very rewarding to see them overcome challenges and make progress.  There is never a dull moment in our class!      
         Hi! I'm Jodie Hough.  I have lived in Henry County all my life and graduated from Stockbridge High.  I am married and have two children.  I have a son who is in the marines and a daughter who works for Atlanta Fork Lifts.  I love animals and have two dogs and a cat.  I worked as a substitute teacher before I started working as a paraprofessional.  I have worked in the classroom for students with autism with Mrs. Harris for 12 years and I can't imagine doing anything else!  I love the students and enjoy seeing them reach even the smallest milestones!
