Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Atkins, Nancy

I have had the pleasure of being a reading partner as a Reading Support teacher to many of Shields' students for 20 years.   I am also a Certified Academic Language Therapist, CALT, working with dyslexia students teaching the Take Flight program.  

I have been married for 25 years and have two amazing daughters in college.  We share our home with a sweet little Shih Tzu, a funny Great Pyrenees and two crazy cats.  

I want my students to know they are the reason I am here.  I want my students to feel welcome and valued everyday.

My phone extension at Shields is 5169.
