Mrs. M. Kacy Nix Ed.S.

Welcome to our class!

I’d love to tell you a little about myself!  This is going to be another fun, loving, learning experience for everyone in our classroom, and I cannot wait to learn about your children.  I am beginning my 15th year as a special education teacher.  I began teaching in Cherokee County at Little River Elementary where I taught for 12 years.  I then taught for 1 year in Carroll County and am now beginning my second year at Ashworth Middle School. 

I graduated from The University of West Georgia with a Bachelor’s Degree in Special Education.  I have since gone back to school and received my Masters in Early Childhood Education from Piedmont College and my Educational Specialist Degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Lincoln Memorial University.  I have hopes of one day returning to school to complete my Educational Doctorate degree. 

I have 3 beautiful children; AJ is four and attends PreK at Belwood Elementary.  Hudson is 9 and in fourth grade at Belwood Elementary, and Mackenna is 11 and is in 6th grade here at Ashworth.  I am married to another educator, Cory Nix.  He is currently in his second year serving as the Head Football Coach at Gordon Central High school. 

As I have learned a lot from my education, I feel strongly that I learn more from my students.  I believe they teach me while I teach them.  I strive to create a loving environment for my classroom.  I want the students to come to school each day and know that they are loved.  I then focus my instruction on the individual needs of each student.  I do have high expectations for my students and hold them to those expectations.  I am looking forward to seeing how much my returning students have grown.  It is going to be a great year!
