Ms. Kim Norris
My first teaching position was in a fifth grade classroom in Harnett County, where I quickly fell in love with the curriculum and the daily interaction with my students. I taught there for two years before accepting my first fifth grade position in Johnston County at Cleveland Middle School. I have been teaching at Dixon Road Elementary since the opening of the school in 2006. Time has flown by and this school year now marks my 20th year teaching fifth grade!
I'm excited to help you grow your love of learning this year. Be prepared to do your best and to grow as we tackle fifth grade together!

We hope that you and your student have already noticed some of the exciting new food and meal opportunities we are offering in our cafeterias this school year. Our new options will include more fresh produce, vegetarian options, and opportunities for students to customize their meal choice. These new offerings will be available at both breakfast and lunch.
