Hello My Name Is...

Mr. Rode



About Me:

I've been a Science & Math teacher for 10 years now, and this is my 2nd year at Oak Hammock. I graduated from the University of Central Florida (Go Knights!) with a degree in Communications and spent the next 10 years working as a Reporter/Anchor for various news organizations. While it was fun meeting various celebrities, athletes and politicians, I'd much rather be teaching.
I am fully aware that Middle School is an incredibly difficult time for students as they make the transition from children to adults. My job is to make it less painful and hopefully more fun.
