Women and Snakes – February 2, 2013

Victoria Hodges – Commerce City, Colorado

Victoria is an educator in Commerce City’s afterschool and summer programs.  She also had an extreme fear of snakes that originated from a lack of exposure and understanding.  She also understood that as an “educator” she needed to overcome her fears not only for herself but for her students and their education.  She cautiously watched our program from outside the classroom but soon found herself drawn to the snakes.  Before we left, Victoria conquered her fear to the cheers of her students by holding a sand boa.  Thank you Victoria for stepping up as an example for our children and teachers.
