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.
