Degrees and Certifications:
Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the fifth grade at Dewey L Carter. My name is Mrs. Atkinson and I am excited to have your child in my class. I am looking forward to getting to know you and your child throughout the year.
To let you know a little about myself, I was born and raised in South Carolina and I have three sisters. I have one older sister and two younger sisters whom I spend a lot of time with. When I graduated from high school, I moved to Clemson to attend Clemson University. I majored in Elementary Education and could not wait to graduate and start teaching.
After graduating from Clemson, I moved down around Bluffton, South Carolina and began my teaching career. After getting married a few years later, my husband and I decided it was time to move to Florence to be closer to family. Since moving to Florence I have completed my master's degree in Educational Administration through Capella University.
I am very eager to work with you this year to help your child succeed in everything they do. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time. Again, I am excited about getting to know you and your child this year.
