• Welcome to Our Class

    Welcome to 1st 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. Everything we will be learning will be highlighted in the weekly newsletter that will be sent home every Friday! I can't wait to experience this year with you in Room 114!

  • Meet the Teacher
    Hi! My name is Miss Dickson. This is my 1st year teaching. I graduated from Purdue NorthWest 
    in December 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. I have also worked in remediation for grades K-5 in Portage Schools.
    I am eager to put my skills to use and excited to be joining the Wolves' family.
    My favorite hobbies are to go to the beach, reading, and playing sports. I am so excited to begin this journey
    with your student. It's going to be a great year in 1st grade.
