Welcome to the team, Dixie Lopez!
My name is Dixie Lopez and I recently graduated from the University of Arkansas as part of Project REACH, a partnership between Springdale Schools and the U of A to promote bicultural and bilingual teachers within the district. I am thrilled to be joining the JO Kelly Knights in a full-time capacity. Some of you may know me from the after school program, Knight Time, or from Knapp Elementary where I previously worked. I am excited to continue being a part of Springdale Public Schools and to keep seeing students I’ve had in the past as well as meet new smiling faces. More importantly, I am committed to Springdale Schools’ mission to teach and empower all of our students.
