Amena Dixon

Welcome to my classroom!!!! My name is Mrs. Amena Dixon and I’ve been teaching at McDonnell Elementary since 2001. I grew up in Talladega County (Childersburg, AL) and I am also the youngest of four siblings. I am married to my college sweetheart and friend, Hovet Dixon, Jr., which is also an educator as well. We are the proud parents of two daughters and a son.

I consider myself an organized, hard-working, and self-motivated teacher who puts a great effort into preparing my lessons while using multiple teaching strategies to keep my students focused and interested. I am a caring, patient, and sensitive teacher who works well with students of various backgrounds and learning capabilities. I am dedicated to helping your child learn!

It is always a wonderful blessing to see our children grow and bloom as learners throughout the years as we follow them through their school days, year after year.
