Hello! My name is Mrs. Atkinson, or Ms. A, and I am teaching 5th grade general science and 6th grade physical science for the 2019-2020 school year. This is my first year teaching!
I enjoy working at Farnsworth because we have helpful, supportive educators, and we have so many opportunities for enrichment of science and engineering.
Before coming to Farnsworth, I was a Regulatory Analyst for Pace Analytical Services onsite at 3M in Maplewood for 3 years. I wrote safety information to be used for 3M workers in their plants.
I have my Minnesota teaching lisence in 5-8 General Science and 9-12 Chemistry through the graduate teaching program at the College of Saint Scholastica. I have a Bachelor's of Science from South Dakota State University in Biochemistry.
I grew up on a farm in central Iowa, and now live in Minneapolis with my husband and my cat, Fynn. In my free time, I like to run, hike Minnesota's beautiful state parks, bake, and play board games.
