“We're delighted to welcome Adele Dixon as the new leader of Blaney Elementary. Her extensive administration and teaching experience within our district, including her past time at Blaney Elementary, is invaluable. Mrs. Dixon is known for her dedication to instruction and fostering a positive school environment. Her passion for education and the Elgin community is truly inspiring,” says Dr. Harrison Goodwin.

Dixon began her teaching career in 2001 as a fifth-grade teacher at Caughman Road Elementary in Columbia before moving to Pine Tree Hill Elementary in 2006. From 2008-2014 she taught third, fourth, and fifth grades at Blaney Elementary, where she was selected as the school’s 2010 Reading Teacher of the Year and 2013-2014 Teacher of the Year and District Honor Roll Teacher. She served as Blaney Elementary’s reading coach during the 2014-2015 school year.

In 2015, Dixon was promoted to assistant principal of Lugoff Elementary, where she has served for the past nine years. During her time at Lugoff Elementary, she has been instrumental in helping the school obtain the Strengthening Families Program Grant and 5210 Healthy Generations recognition. She also implemented a school-wide Reader’s Workshop. 

“As a member of the Elgin community, I am so blessed to have the opportunity to serve the students, parents, and faculty of Blaney Elementary. I look forward to the partnerships we will create as we work to ensure every child’s success. It is my great honor to return to the ‘Heart of Elgin,’” says Dixon.

Dixon earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology, Masters of Arts in Teaching, and Masters in Education Administration, all from the University of South Carolina. 

She is a member of the South Carolina Association of School Administrators (SCASA).

Dixon is married to Barry, who attended Blaney Elementary and is a Kershaw County School District graduate. They have four children: Malia, Bailee, Barry and Baylor, and three granddaughters.
