Hello from Mrs. Atkinson
I am honored to be entering my 6th year at Meeker as a special education teacher. Nowhere else have I ever experienced such a sense of family and community in a school. Meeker parents, students and staff genuinely care for one another and believe building positive relationships is the foundation for creating a safe, supportive learning environment.
A little about me - My husband Kory and I will celebrate our 25th anniversary this year! We have two amazing boys, Koby 18 and Kooper 13, and a houseful of unusual pets including a hedgehog we just adopted. As a family, we enjoy camping, hiking, geocaching, and a variety of other outdoor activities. If you have never experience geocaching, stop by and see me, I'd love to tell you all about it!
Education - I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education/Early Childhood Education from Florida State University, a Master's degree in Special Education from the University of Northern Colorado (UNCO), and I am currently working on an Education Specialist (EdS) degree in Educational Leadership also from UNCO. As you can probably tell, I am passionate about learning! It is my greatest desire to pass that passion for learning on to my students.
I am so excited for this upcoming year in our new building! The redesign is going to provide more opportunities for collaboration and personalized learning and the Leader in Me will inspire every student to reach their highest levels of success! It is truly going to be an amazing year and I look forward to welcoming familiar faces and meeting families new to Meeker.
