Betsy Dixon was raised in Portland, OR, but moved to Eugene after graduating from college and getting married. She spent her first years in Eugene substitute teaching, ending up in 4th and 5th grade at a local elementary school. She took a break from full time teaching after having children, but continued to substitute. Betsy has experience in the homeschool community, public schools, as well as teaching at a virtual charter school. Her passion is to help each student reach their individual potential and see the joy in learning. Outside of school, she enjoys being outdoors with the animals on her farm, reading, and spending time with family.
