I have fond memories of being a student of Mrs. Atkinson at Jefferson School. She was a great teacher and a very kind and gentle person. If I remember correctly, she drove a cute little red car. What a fine life she lived!! My sympathy to her family. God Bless her memory!!

Mrs Atkinson was my third grade teacher at Wales. She broke her hip that year and Mrs. Marsden took over for her the rest of the year. Mrs. Atkinson was a very kind person. Thoughts and prayers for her family.
