Welcome to the Opportunity School!


My name is Gerald Nixon and I am the assistant principal. I earned my Bachelors in elementary education from Winston-Salem State University and a Masters in School Administration from Gardner-Webb university. I come to Cabarrus County from Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools where I taught elementary school for the first 10 years of my career and middle school science for the last six. I'm looking forward to the 2022-2023 school year. I hope to instill a love of learning in my students. I believe that learning is one of the many joys in life that makes waking up every day that much more exciting.
