Miss Atkinson

Hello fifth grade Trailblazers! My name is Waverly Atkinson and I am thrilled to be teaching fifth grade at Discovery Elementary this school year. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and obtained my Master’s degree in Elementary Education at the University of Mary Washington. I previously taught second grade in my beautiful college town, Fredericksburg, Virginia. I recently relocated to Ashburn to be much closer to my fiance's job. So far we are absolutely loving it here and will gladly take recommendations for local places to check out! 

My favorite days are spent in the classroom, but I also enjoy running, reading, exploring new beaches, going to ice hockey games, and playing with my two adorable dogs, Scotty and Jax. I am a big fan of coffee, music, and fitness. I love going to cycle class, trying new coffee shops, and attending concerts. Indie rock is my favorite genre, but I appreciate all types of music.

I am so excited to meet our class and cannot wait for the great times that are ahead of us. My goal is for our class to have fun, learn lots of meaningful content, and fall in love with the learning process each day in the classroom. Get ready for the best year yet. Amazing things are about to happen in room 234!
