Mrs. Caroline Hockaday

Welcome to my website. I am Caroline Dunn Hockaday and I am a kindergarten teacher at Dixon Road Elementary School.

I am excited to start my seventh year as a Dixon Road Dragonfly. I  have taught kindergarten and first grade in Johnston County Public Schools for the last 9 years. I am from Benson, North Carolina and a 2008 graduate of South Johnston High School. I am a 2012 graduate of North Carolina State University with a BS in Elementary Education with a STEM focus.

While at NC State University, I was selected to be a part to the Teaching Fellows Scholarship Program for the state of North Carolina. As a teaching fellow, I was able to travel across the state (and WORLD) to observe and experience unique educational opportunities that influenced me to become the teacher I am today. In those experiences I learned that teachers who were flexible, life-long learners, who always set high standards for themselves truly inspired the students they taught. They show students how to be a successful adult by example. No matter what career path students take, they will be more successful if they aren’t afraid of change, are willing to learn a new skill, and are always setting new goals for themselves. In turn, I also strive to make learning a fun, hands-on experience as often as possible.  

I currently reside in Benson, NC with my husband Weston and our dog Willaby. Hobbies of mine include crafting, dance, and all things that involve glitter. I am a member of the NCAE and I currently a volunteer with the Miss America Organization.
