Joann Anderson
Anderson, Joann
Bookkeeper
My name is Joann Anderson and this is my 20th year here at DMS. For 19 years I worked as a secretary in the office. This is my first year as the DMS bookkeeper. It’s an exciting change for me! I’ve lived in Dickson all of my life and attended this very school in the 8th and 9th grade so I suppose “Dragon” blood runs through my veins. Go Dragons!

Kim Estes
Estes, Kim
Attendance Secretary
I started working at Dickson Middle School in 2004. My hope for students (and parents) is that they realize the importance of coming to school is critical to their success not only in school but in their future careers.
Leslie Harrison
Harrison, Leslie
Principal
I received my Bachelor's degree at Arkansas State University with a degree in Music Education and then went on to receive my Master's in Education and Administration through Travecca Nazarene University. I was a music teacher for 16 years and was lucky to teach in the same building where my three sons were attending school. My goal is to inspire our students to become more than they believe they can be.
