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 6 years and have experience with all grades PreK-12 This will be my first 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, 10 year old daughter, and two dogs. I have two older daughters who have graduated from college and a son who is a sophomore this year at the Pennsylvania College of Technology. I also have a 2 year old grandson and 3 granddogs. I served as a troop leader for the Boy Scouts of America for nine years and love to go camping, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and most anything outside. I love going to museums and monuments and learning history with my son. Thanks to COVID-19, I have also developed a passion for completing puzzles and playing board games with my youngest daughter. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or (302) 292-1463 ext: 333
