Degrees and Certifications:

Ms. Nixon


B.A. and M.Ed. in Special Education from the University of Illinois

Welcome! I am excited to be a part of the special education team at Montessori Academy for Peace, working with students in E2 and Middle School! I have been teaching since 2000 and have been with Decatur Public Schools since 2012. When not teaching, I enjoy gardening, reading, traveling to visit friends and family, and raising chickens for eggs. Besides Illinois, I have lived in Ohio, North Carolina and even Hawaii!  I am trained in Montessori practices and can’t wait until we are all back in school to do all things Montessori!
