Mr. Danny Atkins has been teaching at St. Martha since 2014. He has a Bachelor Degree in Secondary English Teaching from Eastern Kentucky University and is working on a Master’s Degree in Guidance Counseling.

"My classroom is for open ideas and open hearts. Everyone is welcome in my classroom and all thoughts and viewpoints are accepted."

Q & A with Mr. Atkins

 

Highlight of the year:

The highlight of my year is doing poetry, when the students create a poetry book filled with poems they wrote.

Passion:

I am most passionate about making the words on the page come to life. Showing the students that there is a whole world between those lines, they just have to look. I also am passionate about being “real” with the students, encouraging them to be themselves and not care what anyone else thinks.

Philosophy:

My classroom is for open ideas and open hearts. Everyone is welcome in my classroom and all thoughts and viewpoints are accepted.

Favorite part of teaching:

My favorite thing is seeing students get excited about reading when they would rather have a tablet or phone in their hands.

Favorite teaching memory:

I love working on the school play every year and creating fantastic memories with my students.

Favorite thing about St. Martha:

I love how we are just one big family here at St. Martha.

My hope for my students:

I hope that my students grow up to be the person they want to be and not the person they think other people want them to be.

Fun fact:

I’m a huge nerd, and my favorite book series of all time is Harry Potter.
