Mrs. Akin

Mrs. Akin is a 6th grade ELA teacher.  She has been teaching 6th grade ELA in Willis for the past 24 years. She truly enjoys getting to know the kids and watch them grow up through their reading and writing skillls.  

Mrs. Akin is a graduate from Texas Tech University where she received a B.B.A in finance.  Later, she went to Sam Houston State Univeristy where she obtained her teaching certificate after completing the required 66 hours. Her specialties include the following: pushing fluency and comprehension, increasing interest in reading, and helping kids get more comfortable in writing while developing their craft.  She is easy going but firm when she needs to be. Mrs. Akin still enjoys what she does and is not a burnt-out, old teacher.  I hope you enjoy her class.
