Mr. Dixon

I am currently the Title/P.E. instructor at Lake Minatare Elementary School.  I received my Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Kearney State College in 1982.  I have also completed my Master’s degree in Elementary Principalship from Kearney State.  Before coming to Scottsbluff Public Schools in 1989, I taught for seven years at Newman Grove, NE.  I taught at Longfellow Elementary and Bluffs Middle School before moving out to Lake Minatare. I LOVE KIDS and I love my job!  I try to bring enthusiasm and kindness with me to my classroom every day.  I joke that I am “still in grade school” when people ask what I do, but there is no place on earth I’d rather be!
