Ms. Patrice Baxter

Dear Dixon families,

I am thrilled to serve as the Assistant Principal at Dixon Educational Learning Academy.  I've been in the education business for a number of years at a variety of levels: elementary school teacher, middle school teacher, curriculum lead, and Assistant Principal.  I am a proud graduate from University of Detroit Mercy with a BA and Concordia University with my MA.  As a lifelong learner, I regularly complete additional classes and courses to assist working with students in the Detroit area.  

My experience working in schools has given me an appreciation of the importance of a positive elementary experience for our children.  The basic foundations of not only academics but also of character development, moral judgment and citizenship are shaped in these early years of formal education.  At DPSCD and at Dixon, we have a core value of Students First, which means that decisions are made according to the best interest of your student! 

We all believe that when our Students Rise – We All Rise.  It is my goal to work as an advocate for students providing them with support and guidance to help them build knowledge, skills, and confidence necessary to thrive in our city, our nation, and CONQUER our world!

We cannot make this journey alone, we need the partnership and support of our families.  All of us working together will give us the best possible outcome for our children!
