Ms. Makenzie Dixon
Hello New Bern High School!
My name is Makenzie Dixon, and I will be teaching American History and Civics!
I am a graduate of New Bern High School (Class of 2015) and I am super excited to be back as a History Teacher.
This is my second official year in the classroom and my first year at New Bern High School. I began my career in Education as a Long Term Substitute Teacher teaching ELA and Social Studies at Grover C Fields Middle School. During this time, I completed a degree in Pedagogy Studies in History and Literature along with a Minor in History through the University Studies Program at East Carolina University. As of this Fall, I will be starting the Teacher Residency Program at East Carolina University to complete my History Education License for grades 6 through 12.
I currently live with my fiance Aaron (another graduate of New Bern High School), our two chihuahuas, three ferrets, and a bearded dragon.
I love Chocolate, Starbucks, Anime, and Magic the Gathering.
My favorite period in History is tied between The Victorian Era and the Greco-Roman Period.
Had I not pursued my love of the Teaching Profession I would have become a Shipwreck Archaeologist.
