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.
