My name is Debbie Atchison. I teach the first grade SIOP class at Jackson. First grade is so much fun as students learn to READ and ADD and SUBTRACT! We also keep very busy learning English as a new language each day. I was born in Seymour. I am married and my husband's name is Mark. We have moved and lived all over the country. We have one son, Mitch, who recently graduated from Indiana University. He moved to Minneapolis in early August. We have a cat named Prissy Lou and a German Shepherd named Khloe. I enjoy cooking, traveling, and movies. I am looking forward to the 2012-2013 school year!
