Mrs. Sharon Dixon
Did you know the name Sharon represents "Rose of Sharon" which is a flowering plant in Israel? I was born in a country bordering the Atlantic Ocean. There are beautiful roses that bloom year round! My family and I moved to Florida from the Northeast about fourteen years ago. Liberty has been my home for almost two years and I am "proud to be a lion." As we travel the 6th Grade journey our focus will be to utilize techniques and strategies that support the ability to become stronger readers, thinkers, and speakers. I am "roar-all" excited about the adventure that awaits us! We do our best! We do what's right! We treat others the way we want to be treated!
