Riverchase Galleria recently presented Oak Mountain Elementary teacher, Rosalyn Dixon, with the title of “Top Notch Teacher” in their Celebrate Teachers contest. The goal of the contest is to recognize a local teacher who shows extra effort and caring in the classroom and affects their students’ lives in positive and unique ways. Dixon was nominated by a parent of one of her students. Others in the community cast their votes online to support Dixon as a deserving candidate. Dixon has been a second grade teacher at Oak Mountain Elementary for seven years. After an all-day field trip to the zoo with her students, Dixon arrived back at the school to a surprise announcement and presentation from the Riverchase Galleria. She was awarded a $500 gift card. Dixon was excited to find her students were also a part of the celebration as they were provided an ice cream party by Häagen-Dazs.
