Meet the Teacher
Hello! My name is Vicki Dixon and I will be your child’s 7th grade science teacher. I have been teaching for 8 years and have experience with all grades PreK-12 This will be my third year teaching at ASPIRA. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in elementary education and a Master of Arts degree in middle grades sciences. I have a passion for teaching and believe in supporting social and emotional development in addition to academics. My goals for teaching your children go beyond just the science content. I will teach them to be critical thinkers, to use their creativity, to never give up on their desires, and to develop a passion for learning. I will also teach them to develop their social and emotional skills so they can be confident, independent thinkers who know how to express themselves. These skills will help them become productive citizens who can make a positive impact within their communities.
I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, 12 year old daughter, 1 dog, and 1 gecko. I have two older daughters who have graduated from college and a son who is a senior this year at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. My 12 year old will be in 7th grade this year. I also have a 2 young grandsons (4 and 1), and 3 granddogs. I served as a troop leader for the Boy Scouts of America for nine years and love to go camping, fishing, swimming, hiking, horseback riding, and most anything outside. I love going to museums and monuments and learning history with my son. I also love playing soccer and completing jigsaw puzzles with my youngest daughter (look closely and you will see many of these puzzles in our classroom). I love catching up with my older daughters with a caramel iced coffee at Starbucks or a frozen caramel coffee at Dunkin' Donuts. My favorite thing to do is practice karate with my two younger children.
I am very excited to get the school year started! If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at at [email protected] or (302) 292-1463 ext: 333
