Curtis Atkins, Social Studies Teacher

Curtis Atkins is a first year Social Studies teacher at MAC, but no stranger to the classroom. Originally from Richmond, Virginia, his passion for history is one he enjoys sharing with students to help bring historic events, places, and moments to life so they know what came before them, and ultimately what responsibility that carries into their future. He takes pride in letting students know there is nothing they can’t conquer with hard work and dedication.

He started his career working with children with mental and physical disabilities as a counselor at Camp Easter Seals, and from there decided to serve his country in the 92G United States Army from where he lived in Germany, traveling to places like Babylon while serving during Operation Enduring Iraqi Freedom.

Curtis has had a variety of jobs within the education sector, giving him insight into many different educational models. These include working as a day counselor, substitute teacher, house supervisor for an adult program, and campus director for Boys & Girls Club. 

He graduated with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Business Administration and is preparing to return to get his Masters in Childhood Education.
