I am so excited to have the opportunity to serve as principal of S.S. Dixon Intermediate School.  I have worked in the field of education for 33 years.  I taught special education for the first 24 years of my career and have been in administration for the last 9 years.  I love working with children and seeing them learn.  I also love helping others and believe this is what led me into administration.   I have two grown children who graduated from Pace High School.  My daughter works for Gulf Coast Health Care and my son is a deputy in Santa Rosa County.  I have three grandsons, the oldest began kindergarten this year!  My husband is retired and enjoys playing golf, kayaking, and traveling. 

As principal, I believe my role is to make sure the education the students receive is the best it can be!  By working closely with the staff, parents, and community we can provide a well-rounded education for all.   Our focus area for the next few years will be promoting more technology across all subject areas in an effort to prepare our students for the ever changing work force.  This initiative is better known as “STEAM”.  

Parents. you are welcome to call, visit, or email any concerns, ideas, or suggestions.  I hope you will take an active role in your child’s education.  We love volunteers and want you to feel welcomed at Dixon Intermediate School! 

It’s great to be a Jr. Patriot!!!!
