Dear Parents and Students,
Hello! My name is Kristin Nixon, and I am thrilled to be teaching Target again this year!
For those of you who do not know me yet, this is my sixteenth year teaching at King Springs (and my second year teaching Target). I can’t believe it! I have previously taught Kindergarten, First and Second Grades. I have a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and a Specialist degree in Educational Leadership, both from Mercer University. I also have an endorsement in gifted education.
I’m a “homegrown Georgia peach” and a HUGE DAWGS fan! I live in Smyrna with my husband, Michael, and our new baby girl, Brooklyn. We also have two "boys" Dasher Incredible and Slinky Longfellow, who just so happen to be Miniature Dachshunds.
I typically arrive at school at 7:10 and stay until 3:00 p.m. I have included my email address below. This is the best way to get in touch with me, especially regarding something needing immediate attention, as I can reply to email more quickly than phone messages. I appreciate all questions and concerns you have, so JUST ASK!
I look forward to an enriching year in Target! Thank you in advance for all your support.
