Mrs. Dana Coleman

I have been teaching at Dixon Road since the school opened in 2006. I have taught third, fourth, and fifth grades over the past 23 years. Currently, I teach 5th grade...all subjects.

We will be using class dojo for behavior communication this year.  If you don't already have an account, please visit the class dojo site and create and account.  You will be given a parent code during orientation.  You will need that code to link to your child's progress. Students will have the opportunity to earn rewards for the points that they earn throughout the school year.
