Dixon’s philosophy of education is a simple one. He believes that all students are capable of learning even though all students do not have the same leaning styles or the same intrinsic motivation. He also believes that education should be seamless and inclusive, focusing on whatever is in the best educational, social, and emotional welfare of all students. He firmly believes that it is the school system’s responsibility to produce graduates who are lifelong learners, critical thinkers and problem solvers, as well as effective communication, both orally and through writing.
