About Me

My name is Dr. Dixon and I have taught middle school Math, Science, Social Studies, Coding, and Business Education for over 25 years across various Georgia school districts.    I am a graduate of Austin Peay State University, Georgia State University, and Georgia Southern University.  I am excited about working with the students and parents of the Impact Academy Community, and look forward to partnering with you to support the academic growth of  your child.  This is my 26th year of teaching.

Assignments

Students must strive to submit assignments on the designated dates for full credit.  Communications regarding grade Improvement opportunities can be accessed via this website, or the class hub. Students will have 7 days from the due date to submit assignments for a late grade before the grade is finalized as a zero.  Students will be permitted to complete grade improvement opportunities to remedy zeroes on current assignments. Please remind your scholar of the importance of reviewing the open and close dates on grade improvement opportunities.

Google Classroom

Google Classroom is the online platform used to facilitate instruction.  I encourage parents to have your child logon weekly to share their week's progress with you, and to sign up for weekly reports.  This will provide parents the opportunity to stay abreast of their child's progress towards completion of assignments.
