This will be my 17th year at Akins High School!
Aside from being the Academy Coordinator for the amazing Social Services Academy, I am also in charge of our social work major. Students interested in going into counseling, therapy, or social work can gain valuable field site experience learning how to help serve others in need. In the Practicum in Human Services students are trained to become peer mentors to other students in times of crises and are able to utilize those skills in a number of other opportunities.
I am also a part of the Akins Cross Country and Girls Track coaching staff and help sponsors our Akins TAFE club. I have loved every minute of teaching here and am looking forward to many more great years!
