Ms. Atchison


My name is Janey Atchison and this is my fourth year as a teacher at Murray Middle School. I teach 7th Grade American Studies and am the Women's Studies teacher for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders!

Previously, I was at Murray in support roles as well as a teacher at Ramsey Middle School. I am from Stillwater, MN, but always loved St. Paul more. I went to the University of Minnesota for my undergraduate degree focusing on business. I then returned to school at Metropolitan State University to earn my teaching license and my Master's in Education focusing specifically on Urban Education. I am currently working on my Ph.D. in Education Policy at the U of MN.

In my free time, I love reading books and doing something athletic. My favorite book series is Harry Potter! I am a proud resident of the East Side of St. Paul and love walking my dog, Banjo, around Lake Phalen. My favorite Minnesota pastime is going to the State Fair!
