Hello, Jr. Patriots! My name is Candace Hendricks, and I’m so excited to be the Assistant Principal of S.S. Dixon Intermediate.  I began my teaching career at Sims Middle School as a 6th grade World History/ESE teacher and SGA sponsor.   I soon accepted the opportunity to became one of the guidance counselors there.  I spent 6 years at Sims, until I moved to the District’s ESE Department working as the Gifted Program Facilitator.  

I’m a Troy University graduate and have a MS in Educational Leadership from Concordia University.  Currently, I reside in Jay, Florida, with my husband Bill and our 2 boys, Nathan and Matthew. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with family, traveling, fishing, kayaking, and watching my boys play baseball and basketball. 

I can’t tell you how happy I am to be a part of Dixon Intermediate and the incredible community. I believe that a quality education is one of the most important keys to unlocking all of our dreams, and I am here to advocate for students, inspire teachers, and support the community.
