Gerald Nixon

My name is Gerald Nixon, I am the Opportunity School middle grade science teacher. I earned my Bachelors in elementary education from Winston-Salem State University and a Masters in School Administration from from Gardner-Webb university. I come to Cabarrus County from Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools where I taught elementary school for the first 10 years of my carreer and middle school science for the last four. I'm looking forward to the 2019-20 school year. I hope to instill a love of science and a general love of learning in my students. I believe that learning is one of the many joys in life that makes waking up every day that much more exciting.
