In his own words . . .

“The main reward that I find in teaching is seeing my current and former students have a certain level of confidence in their math abilities so that they know that they can conquer any math problem that comes their way. It pains me to see a student just give up on a math problem because they don’t know how to tackle it. I strive every day to make sure that my students have the confidence and ability to use their math and problem-solving skills to solve any problem thrown their way.”

In the words of others . . .

“Because of Mr. Attleson, Frostwood sends the best prepared students to middle school in the district. Additionally, somehow Mr. Attleson finds time to coach the boys running club, ‘Let Me Run.’ It is no wonder at all that Mr. Attleson has strong relationships with former students, often providing tutoring and mentoring throughout their high school and college years. Mr. Attleson is the ‘poster child’ for a T-2-4 teacher!” 
Ellen Green, Frostwood Elementary Principal  

“His students love him as shown by the many invitations he receives to their birthday parties, church programs, and athletic activities. He attends each and every one. This counts for former students as well. The seniors at Memorial High School are always excited to see Mr. Attleson in the stands at an athletic event or the auditorium for a performance.”
