Hello!  I am Nancy Atkins. 

I'm the Literacy Strategist at Shields Elementary.  I have had the pleasure of being part of the Shields family for 15 years.  This school year is my 26th year of teaching.  I love to teach students to read and then watch them learn to love reading.

My other wonderful family includes my husband of 21 years and my two daughters, ages 18 and 15.  

I am so lucky to be part of two supportive and loving families.
