I graduated from Sparkman High School in 1990. After Sparkman, I attended Calhoun Community College for two years and finished my education degree at Athens State University. I further pursued my education career and graduated from Alabama A&M with my Master's degree in Elementary Education.
This is my 19th year to teach. I taught second grade for two years and this is my 17th year in third grade.
Hello all - My name is Patricia Atchley and I am a third grade teacher at Cedar Hill Elementary School. I have been married to Barney Atchley for 20 years, and we have two wonderful children. Addy is 15 and is in 9th grade at Ardmore. Brody is 12 and in 7th grade at Cedar Hill. We have a cat, Lilly, that has been a part of the family for a few years now along with our two dogs, Lizzie & Lucy. I grew up in Harvest and moved to the Toney community around ten years ago. Life is hectic with two little ones in ball and socializing, but I absolutely love every minute of it! : ) I am also a member of Wooley Springs Baptist Church.
