Jamie Atkinson Teacher 847-838-7167 firstname.lastname@example.org Notes What ‘Ignite passion and discovery in every student’ Means to Me In my class discovery is the key! We are discovering new ways to learn and teach; new ways to support each other; and discovering what our lives will look like when we leave ACHS. A Teachable Moment When I was a Sophomore in high school, at Mount Assisi Academy, I volunteered with another girl at the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon. It was the coolest and craziest experience all in one day. I was then introduced to working for MDA as a camp counselor. It was at MDA Summer Camp that I knew special education was my calling. Just by being a caring person, I could make the difference in someones life. My work with MDA taught me that disabilities do not define a person and that all people should have a meaningful and memorable life experiences.
