Hello! My name is Yvonne Dixon and I am a 2nd grade teacher here at Rocky Branch Elementary School. I have been a resident of Oconee County most of my life and have loved teaching in the school system I graduated from. My 26 years of teaching experience have been in the primary grades (K-2). I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1994 and taught my first five years in Walton County as a first grade teacher. When my daughter was entering Kindergarten I decided it was time to come home to be with her in Oconee County. I worked at Malcom Bridge Elementary School for two years before Rocky Branch was built in 2002. Since that time I have taught first grade, Title/EIP support and 2nd grade here at RBES. I am married, have two adult children and a beautiful granddaughter. Teaching is a joy for me. I believe every child can learn, but we as teachers need to help pave the way for that learning to occur.
