Principal's Corner

DJ Nix Biography

Mr. Nix has over 22 years of experience in education. Mr. Nix’s journey to becoming principal of Jemison Intermediate school began as a student in Chilton County schools where he witnessed fairness and stability, as well as,  always doing the right thing. After graduating from the University of Montevallo, Mr. Nix took the first step to becoming part of the Chilton County family as a history teacher at Jemison Middle School, where he taught for 2 years. After leaving Jemison Middle School, Mr. Nix was assigned to Chilton County High School where his interest in school administration was born and nurtured. After obtaining a certificate from Alabama State University’s Educational Leadership program, he continued his pursuit of certifications in school administration by completing the Education Specialist program at the University of West Alabama. The knowledge and skills gained from this educational experience poised Mr. Nix to become Assistant Principal at Chilton County High School. While serving as assistant principal, Mr. Nix implemented  safety plans, accreditation and Advanced Ed goals, and inclusion classrooms. He was known for easily fostering connections with students, parents and the community. Also while Assistant Principal at CCHS, Mr. Nix taught evening classes for Wallace Community College and Jefferson State Community College.

As principal of Jemison Intermediate School, Mr. Nix has worked to build a culture of  inclusiveness and academic success by facilitating the use of technology, challenging teachers to implement new instructional strategies and insisting that faculty and staff always put students first. Becoming principal of Jemison Intermediate school has not taken the momentum away from Mr. Nix’s desire to continuously grow in his profession. He attends the annual CLAS conference for education leaders and has even partnered with other schools outside of Chilton county to share best practices.
