About Mrs. Atkins

I am excited to start the 2019-2020 school year at Forbush Middle School! This year I will be entering my 8th year of teaching, second here at FMS. My first 6 years were spent teaching math in the WSFCS district. The first 3 years was at Mineral Springs Middle School and the last 3 was at Jefferson Middle School, both located in Winston-Salem. I am passionate about the youth here in Yadkin County. I attended Fall Creek Elementary and Forbush High School. After graduating from FHS, I attended Western Carolina University where I obtained a degree in Elementary Education and K-6 licensure. After graduating, I took a job teaching exceptional children in a middle school setting in Elkin and found that my passion was truly with middle school students. Shortly after I started working in Elkin I took the steps to become certified to teach middle school mathematics. In 2013, the same year I married my husband Ryan, I completed coursework through Duke University and became AIG K-12 certified. 
 
I am eager to get this school year started off on the right foot! If there is anything that you feel I need to know about you, or your child please do not hesitate to email me.

Cool fact about "free rice"- From their website: For each answer you get right, our sponsors send the cash equivalent of 10 grains of rice to the World Food Programme, who use it to save and change lives.
 
Go Falcons!
