Welcome to Lewisburg Elementary School!
Welcome to Lewisburg Elementary! I am thankful for the opportunity to serve as the principal of this amazing school!
My family and I are all life-long residents of DeSoto County, specifically the Lewisburg area. I have watched Lewisburg grow and prosper into the beautiful, eclectic community that we have today. As a vested community member and parent, I know and embrace the importance of a quality education for every child.
I have had the privilege to work with the children of DeSoto County Schools for the past 26 years. As a 16 year veteran teacher, I worked with hundreds of students who inspired me to be the educator that I am today. For the past 10 years I have had the joy of being an assistant principal at Shadow Oaks Elementary, Lewisburg Primary School and Oak Grove Central School, as well as, the principal of Greenbrook Elementary. I also taught at the collegiate level at the University of Memphis.
My educational background has afforded me the opportunities that I have today. At Mississippi State University, I earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education. Once I started teaching, I pursued a Master’s degree in Curriculum and Instruction and a Specialist degree in Administration from The University of Mississippi.
I am married to Jarrod Dixon and share two boys, Tye and Jace Dixon. Tye is a graduate of Lewisburg High School and is currently attending Mississippi State University. Jace is currently a junior at Lewisburg High school. My niece, Lydia Harris is also a graduate of Lewisburg High School and is enrolled in the nursing program at Christian Brothers University.
If it were not for the quality foundation received at the Olive Branch Schools, I would not be where I am today. It is my goal to provide an even better experience for our children. Every child is unique. I cannot wait to make our Patriots feel loved and accepted, while promoting their academic success.
Mrs. Cynthia Dixon
