What is Mrs. Atkinson's story?

I grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area before I received my Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology degree from The University of Texas at Austin - Go Longhorns! I have now lived in the Austin area for over 10 years!

I started out my educational career as a Math and Science teacher and girls' basketball & volleyball coach but after 5 years, I decided that I wanted something more out of my career! I went back to school to complete a Master of Education in School Counseling degree from Lamar University and I am now settled into my role as School Counselor here at HMS!

I get joy in listening to student's daily lives and helping them navigate their time through the stressful and awkward adolescent years! I believe that building a mentally strong and resilient mindset in your adolescent years is vital to your success as teenager and more importantly adult!
