Hello! My name is Lora Atkins and I grew up surrounded by the corn fields of Indiana. Even though I wasn't raised here, I got here as soon as I could. I completed my Master's in School Counseling in December of 2010. After working in high school and elementary schools, I've settled in at West McDowell Jr. High. I absolutely love being here! Every day I'm inspired, encouraged, and entertained by the students and staff.
