The Unstoppable Karen Dickson

Recently we had a big honor day where one of the activities was chalk writing. By far, the number one message that was written by our intermediate students was, “We will miss you, Mrs. Dickson.” This is certainly an understatement.

Mrs. Dickson has honored us by serving as our academic and spiritual leader for 18 years. This year she has decided to retire and has posted her “Farewell From the Pond”. Lives, both young and old, have been shaped by her leadership. She led by example and loved children unconditionally. It is said, “There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” Thank you, Mrs. Dickson, for lighting the way — for us as educators and for the children who will go on to be the reflections of us all.



One thought on “The Unstoppable Karen Dickson

  1. Mrs. Dickson hired me seven years ago to be the technology teacher for White Oak Intermediate School. I will have to say she did not teach me very much in long or short conversations across her desk, but I learned VOLUMES from her by observing how she treated people: students, teachers, and parents. She awed me by her ability to handle every situation with a professional demeanor and an attitude of respect and caring. I am so grateful for the privilege of having her as my mentor these past years. She will be greatly missed!
