Q) I know this has nothing to do with education, but I'm curious. I've heard your name pronounced ten different ways... what's the right way?
A) It's a long A, like when you pronounce the name of the letter H. It gets spelled a zillion different ways too... the most common ways are Atchison, Atchinson, Atkinson, Acherson, Ackerson, Atchesen, Achison and Acherson. But please feel free to pronounce it any way you want.
