About the Teacher

My name is Mrs. Atkinson and I will be your child’s Mathematics teacher this year.  I will spend a great deal of time with your child in the upcoming school year.  Because of this, I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you a few things about myself - both personally and professionally.


I was born and raised in Delaware.  I graduated from Middletown High School.  While in school I competitively rode horses which taught me the core values of responsibility, perserverance, integrity, compassion and respect.   I graduated from the University of Delaware with a Bachelors degree in Business Administration Management and Marketing.  Upon graduating from UD, I gained valuable work experience at several large banking companies.  I decided I wanted to pursue a career in education and graduated from Delaware State University with a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction.   I have two children that are students in the Smyrna school district.  I enjoy spending time with my family and reading a good book.   This will be my fourth year teaching for the Smyrna School District - and my eleventh year teaching overall!


As a parent/guardian, you are the most important person in your child’s life, and we need to work together for your child’s benefit.  I need your support for the homework assignments, academic goals, and classroom procedures I have set for the students.  Please read and discuss the course expectations and classroom procedures with your child.   I will also keep you informed about your child’s progress by post cards, phone calls, or emails.  With school and home working together, I know your child can have a successful year.

I look forward to a very exciting, engaging, and rewarding year smiley
