Mr. Atkins, personally is my favourite teacher ever and that says a lot, because I thought nobody would ever top my previous favourite teacher. he’s funny and wise and witty. he teaches you a lot, not only those three subjects in “core” but also life lessons and it’s easy to stay engaged in his classes because he makes it so interesting. he’s great at teaching and I always understood it. definitely a remarkable teacher! picks on people randomly though so beware :)

Homeroom teacher for my son in 7th grade. He is the best teacher my son has ever had. Communicates regularly with parents to discuss both areas for improvement and achievements of their child. Gives the students the tools needed to succeed and then the space to actually grown and learn. Best teacher to have, especially moving from grade 6 to 7. If even half the teachers in a school followed his teaching model we would have much more successful and empowered students. Excellent teacher.

I had Atkins when I was in grade 7 and at first I didn't really like him because he was pretty strict and I didn't know him well yet but once it got to middle of the year he would make jokes and his teaching really helped me learn and I liked him as a teacher. I think he is one of the best teachers I have ever had. -unknown :)

Mr. Atkins is a great teacher who genuinely cares abut his students. All of the staff at West heights are amazing, fun and get down to the point but Mr. Atkins especially is the best. He doesn't give out lots of homework. One Page a day is not bad whatsoever. He gets straight to the point and makes sure you understand the topic before moving onto the next unit. He also allows extra credit work which is useful for future references like good grades and doing well in high school. Mr. Atkins rocks!

Mr.Atkins is a great guy people shouldn't be talking trash About him. I personally think he is the best teacher ever and Im in his class right now and he sure doesn't try to hurt anyone, he just tries too be funny. I don't know about you but i enjoy when I look at my schedule and see that we have core. He lets us do extra credit work also and I'm really glad I got him as a teacher for grade 7
