Paxson Post

4th Grade Math & Science

Welcome to our wonderful world of math and science!

I am honored and excited to be your child's teacher this year to help facilitate their learning in fourth grade. I will team teach with Mrs. V, who will teach Reading, Language, and Social Studies. We will work closely together to meet the needs of each student in our learning community.


Who is Mrs. Paxson?

I have been a public school educator for 21 years, and have taught over 520 students with various learning styles, special needs, and family backgrounds. I have a Master's degree in education with an emphasis in reading and language arts.


My husband and I have been married for 22 years, and we are thankful to call Murfreesboro home. I enjoy my martial arts, running, hiking with my dog, gardening, and supporting my husband with his youth football and baseball teams. I am blessed to be a Brown's Chapel Buck!
