Mrs. Nix's Blog
Lisa Nix joins Gracepoint this year as the Middle School History teacher. Mrs. Nix’s 31 years of experience span teaching Kindergarten, 3rd grade, middle school and adjunct professor at Shorter University, as well as middle school administrator for 12 years. She is a graduate of Carson Newman College in elementary education and holds duel masters from Liberty University in Christian Leadership and Religious Education. While serving the last 5 years at the Swift School in Roswell, Mrs. Nix received her Orton Gillingham Classroom Teacher Certification and Woodin Math training.
Middle School students hold a special place in Mrs. Nix’s heart. This can be a daunting time for students and parents. The heart of a middle school student is one that is pliable to the Word of the Lord and their desire to serve others is immeasurable. This alone would be reason enough to draw a teacher to a group of students. However, their humor, stretching of their wings and thirst for independence is what intrigues and attracts Mrs. Nix to this unique season of a student’s life.
Mrs. Nix lives in Powder Springs with her husband, Jon, and chocolate Labrador, Moose. She has two children, Taylor, a graduate of Samford University and Auburn University, and Jacob, a senior at Berry College.
