Hello, my name is Tim Hixson. I was born and raised in Lansing, Michigan and in 1987 I graduated from Michigan State University. Jobs were scarce at that time, so I moved to Georgia to accept a teaching position with the Fulton County School System. I spent 14 years teaching school in Fulton County. After moving to the west side of Coweta County, I found the commute was getting too long for me, so in 2001 I joined the staff at Smokey Road Middle School, where I've been ever since. I have experience teaching students in 2nd grade through 12th but enjoy 6thgrade the most.  I am most at home in the outdoors, and I enjoy distance running, camping, fishing, and recreational shooting.  My wife and I have been married since 1985 and we have five children and three grandchildren.
