Miss Tiffany

Hi everyone! My name is Ms. Tiffany Nix and this is my second year here at DES.  If you met me last year you might notice that I have a different last name! I got married in June, so I am officially a Nix and not a Buckles; however, I am still getting used to it.  I am from a little town called Elizabethton, TN where I went to a high school with less students than at DES! I have a cat named Callie, and a dog named Gibb. You'll probably see lots of pictures of both of my animals because they loves to help me with my counseling program!

My goal this year is to engage in parent communication as often as possible about things going on in our counseling program at DES. I will be uploading a newsletter to my website at least once every 9 weeks. Click on the newsletter tab to view!
