My name is Christen Atkinson! I am from Memphis and attended The University of Memphis. Go Tigers!!! My first two years of teaching were second grade then first grade in Memphis City Schools. We then moved to Minnesota (my husband is from that frigid place) where I taught first and second grade for three years. At that point I decided to put teaching on hold to stay home with my babies. I have three awesome boys...Benjamin (14), Jonah (11), and Adam (9). After being a stay at home mom for seven years (and moving back to the warmth of the south) I went back to teaching at First Assembly Christian School. I taught two years in kindergarten and three years in first grade. In that time my we moved to north Lakeland and I wanted to teach closer to home. I am so excited to continue my teaching journey in the Bartlett City Schools!
