BA from Liberty University Master's in Literacy at NC State

Mrs. Sandy Bledsoe

I am thrilled to be at Dixon Road Elementary.  Things will be unique this year due to the pandemic, however learning will continue.  I have been in Johnston County for seven years, after teaching in Charlotte.  I graduated from Liberty University with a degree in Elementary Education, and I received my Master's in Literacy from NC State.  I have three children and nine grandchildren.  I am passionate about teaching and seeing creative minds work.  I am looking forward to another awesome year at Dixon Road in First Grade.  Let's work together to make this a great and productive year for every student.
