  • Career Development Coordinator

    photo of Julie DixonMy name is Julie Dixon. I have a special job at Salem Middle School with a blended role of School Counselor and Career Development Coordinator. I am working on the Track 4 Schedule, but I will support all students at SMS with their career readiness and understanding of the world of work.

    I am excited to meet all of our students and engage them in development across the spectrum of their personal, social, academic, and career growth. At Salem Middle School, I will be coordinating with teachers to visit classrooms. Utilizing tools such as Major Clarity and NC Careers are excellent ways to have students process information about their personality and interests and compare it against research based data. I am always trying to connect their decisions to their future.
