Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. J. "TRENT" Marshburn

Please, feel free to call me "Mr. Trent!" I am a third-generation Dixon Bulldog. I graduated with the Class of 2015 at Dixon High. I attended UNC-Wilmington, receiving a History degree and a Theatre minor. It is splendid to return to Dixon Middle to pursue my career in teaching. For the past three years, I taught 6th grade Social Studies. Now, I am pleased to be teaching Theatre Arts as an exploratory. My experience with the theatrical arts was enhanced during my time at UNCW. I was given the opportunity to work "behind the scenes" - including set design, costume design, and construction, and prepping for "opening night." Additionally, I am a patron of Legacy Theater Company in Jacksonville, a wonderful community theater where shows are produced year-round for all ages.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I like to shop at flea markets and yard sales to find hidden treasures to add to my various collections. I also enjoy reading and writing. An item on my bucket list is to write a book. I enjoy attending and participating in theatrical performances. 

I look forward to my fourth year of teaching and meeting my students!
