• Welcome to Our Class

    Welcome to 5th Grade at Joy Elementary. I am so excited to begin this school year with you. This year we will be learning many skills that are crucial to student success.

  • Meet the Teacher
    Hi! My name is Miss Dickson. This is my 3rd year teaching. I graduated from Purdue NorthWest 
    in 2018 with a degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Psychology.
    I did my student teaching at South Central in 2nd grade, where learned that I love working with the
    younger students. From there I came to Michigan City, where I taught in 1st grade my first year and
    virtual 5th grade my second year. I am looking forward to being back in school and taking on the
    adventure of 5th grade! I am the Head JV Softball coach at the highschool, as well as, the elementary
    basketball coach at Joy.

    My favorite hobbies are going the beach, reading, and playing sports.
    I am getting married in Novemeber to my fiance, Andy, so you will see my name changing from
    Dickson to Lindeman after Thanksgiving Break!We have a 2 year old fur baby named Rigsby
    who loves to play outside and go hiking with us.

    I am so excited to begin this journey
    with you. Together we will do great things!
    It's going to be a great year in 5th grade.
