Danesia Dixon

I am the school guidance counselor here at James Dawson Elementary School. I have been an educator for over a decade, as a classroom teacher and school counselor. Before my counseling journey started at Dawson Elementary School, I spent a couple of years as the counselor at Lakewood Elementary School. My educational career started as a Kindergarten teacher at Ridgecrest Elementary School. It was there, that I received my calling to become a school counselor. I decided that I didn’t want to only focus on fostering positive change and understanding on an academic level, but, on social and emotional levels, too. I received my Bachelor's in Early Childhood Education from Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University and my Master's in School Counseling from University of West Alabama.

My husband and I were blessed with three amazing, intelligent and athletic children. They keep us running from one end of the earth, to the other, due to dance recitals, track meets, basketball and football games. We wouldn’t change it for ANYTHING! They are definitely our hobbies.
