Hi there! My name is Pedro Berlanga, this year will be my THIRD year here at Akins High. I am a World History and Ethnic Studies instructor with the Social Services Academy (SSA), and I will also be helping with Akins Eagles Girls soccer team! I'm originally from Brownsville, Texas (waaaaay down south) and a graduate of Texas A&M (Gig 'Em!). In addition, I'm also a recent graduate of the University of Texas Urban Teachers masters program just in case y'all thought I was biased towards one university or the other - I gave my money to both!
Fun story: When I first moved to Austin I lived right behind Akins and was able to have the loud & proud Akins band as my alarm clock every morning (I'm a former band geek so I was fine with it). I love living here in the 512 and I am extremely proud to be a part of this wonderful community. I'm looking forward to a wonderful school year and the many, many amazing kids that come through our doors.
I will try to update this site periodically. Please contact me for any questions regarding school, college, Austin FC, or any Hamilton-related content.
