Celebrating the Remarkable Careers of Mrs. Hampton and Mr. Weidow


After a combined 45 years of dedication and passion, we're bidding a fond farewell to two of our beloved faculty members, Middle School Science Department Chair Dave Weidow and School Librarian Dorothy Hampton, who are retiring at the close of the 2023-24 school year.

For 20 wonderful years, Mrs. Hampton has nurtured a love for reading in our students by establishing Odyssey favorite traditions like Banana Babies, Fall Into Reading, and Open Mic sessions. Her impact on our students and Odyssey’s literary landscape are truly immeasurable.

Meanwhile, Mr. Weidow has been an integral part of the Odyssey journey for 25 incredible years, inspiring hundreds of students with his passion for science and technology. His innovative approach to teaching has left an indelible mark on our school.

Their legacies will continue to inspire generations of Odyssey students.
