Mrs. Atkins, Nancy

I have had the pleasure of being a reading partner as a Reading Support teacher to many of Shields' students for 22 years.   I am also a Certified Academic Language Therapist, CALT.  I teach students with dyslexia using the Take Flight program. 

I have been married for 27 years and have two amazing daughters that attended Shields Elementary and graduated from ROHS.  We share our home with a sweet little Shih Tzu, a funny Great Pyrenees and a calico cat.  

Every day I look forward to seeing my students grow and gain confidence in their educational journey.
