My name is Miss Hillary Atkinson and I am the new gifted support teacher. I have been spending my summer learning about CASD's gifted support program I am confident the transition is going to go smoothly.
I attended Towson University for my bachelors degree in elementary education and I recently received my masters degree from Kutztown University in Instructional Technology. I have been a teacher for seven years in various grade levels. I began teaching in Lancaster in the Hempfield School District (my alma mater!) and recently I was a teacher in the Pleasant Valley School District. Now I am excited and honored to be a part of the Catty Rough Riders!
Outside of school, I coach swimming and GOTR and attend a lot of other sports games. I love the Philadelphia 76ers! I love to bake - cookie decorating is one of my favorite hobbies! I also spend a lot of time with my family and my dog.
I am looking forward to meeting you. We are going to have an awesome school year! If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to contact me. My "home base" will be at the middle school, so it is best to try to contact me there before trying to contact me at the other buildings.
