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
