Heather Findeisen

Welcome, Bulldogs!

It is a pleasure to introduce myself as the principal of Dixon Middle School! I am honored to lead this amazing school staff and am excited to return to the community where my teaching career began!

After graduating from South Johnston High school, I attended UNC-Wilmington where I earned a Bachelor’s degree in Middle Grades Education. I taught middle and high school math for 14 years before earning a Master of School Administration from ECU. I served as an Assistant Principal for four years, after which I became Onslow County Schools’ Secondary Math Content Coordinator for another four years.

I am the proud mother of Cody and Hadley. Cody is a 2022 graduate of Richlands High School and has successfully entered the workforce by pursuing his passion for farming. Hadley is a senior at Richlands High School, where she is an active member of SkillsUSA, the Beta Club, and plays Varsity Volleyball. She hopes to one day work in the health care field.


I look forward to providing our students with endless opportunities that will help guide their future endeavors!
