Mrs. Kayla Atchison

Welcome to Waynesville Middle School!

My name is Kayla Atchison and I teach 7th and 8th grade SI Science as well as co-taught Science 7. As a newly retired military family, we have lived all over and are proud to call Waynesville home. I started with the WMS science department during the 2020-2021 school year. This will be my fourth year in the science classroom. Science is my jam!

I started my career with the Waynesville School District in 2019 as a substitute teacher. That's where I realized the impact I could have in teaching, specifically in STEM and Special Education. I later transitioned to a Paraprofessional for 8th Grade Science before becoming certified in Elementary 1-6 and K-12 Mild/Moderate Special Education.

The best way to contact me is through email.

I look forward to having your student in science this year! It's a GREAT day to be a Tiger!
