Camille Hodges was born in Newport News, Virginia and received her undergraduate degree from Hampton University. She earned her M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction from George Mason University and achieved National Board Teacher Certification in Social Studies/History-Early Adolescence. She has worked as a middle school Social Studies teacher with a Gifted Education Middle School endorsement. In addition to being a FCPS Social Studies Curriculum Support Teacher, she was a Fast Train Summer Social Studies Adjunct Professor from 1999-2004. Her past affiliations include membership on the Dean’s Advisory Committee, GMU School of Education and Human Development; GMU Alumni Association Board; and the Kappa Delta Pi International Honor Society.
As the spouse of a Navy officer Camille has lived in England, California, and Maryland. That experience initiated a passion to travel more broadly, and as a result she has explored most of western Europe, Iceland, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and Peru. Among her favorite places are Paris, France and Machu Picchu, Peru.
Shortly after retiring from Fairfax County Public Schools, Camille returned to work part-time with the Department of Human Resources and continues to do so. Consistent with her passion for education, she also volunteers her time to work with the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) as the co-chairperson of the Humanities and Social Sciences Committee, recent chairperson of the OLLI Outreach Committee, as a tutor for the FCPS Volunteer Learning Program (VLP), and membership in FCPS retired teacher organizations.
Camille currently lives in Fairfax County where her two adult children and six grandchildren reside nearby.
Hodges began her term with the Libraries Advisory Board on July 1, 2018.
