Physical Education: Ms. Atkins

Mrs. Atkins

My name is Kate Atkins and this is my 17th year teaching Physical Education. I began my teaching career in Shreveport Louisiana, where I spent 6 years teaching in a variety of K - 12 settings. After teaching in Louisiana, I found that teaching Physical Education at the elementary levels was my favorite. I feel so fortunate to teach at Stiles Point Elementary. This is now my 10th year teaching at Stiles Point, but my 5 th year as the full time P.E. Teacher. 

I was born outside of Boston, but raised in the small coastal town of Kennebunk Maine. On a family trip to Charleston, my now husband proposed. After getting engaged here, my husband and I decided to relocate permanently to the beautiful city of Charleston back in the summer of 2008.

I initially graduated with a BA in Communications from Florida Atlantic University. After graduation, I endured a few years in the “work force” and then decided to return to school. I earned a Master of Arts in Teaching, with a K-12 certification in Physical Education from Centenary College of Louisiana. Additionally, I earned a 2nd Masters degree in Exercise Science from Louisana State University in Shreveport. 

Teaching Physical Education is my passion. I truly love introducing my students to all of the fun and benefits that sports and fitness can offer. In my spare time, I like to go surfing, kayaking and spend time with my fur-baby Abby.
