Hello, I am a third year teacher in the Lifeskills dept. I have been a Teacher's Aid here at Akins for the last 3 yrs. I have over 13 years experience working for people with disabilities in the educational, residential, and vocational settings. I am from Macomb, Illinois and moved to Texas in 2000 here I transferred to Texas State and graduated in 2004. In my free time I enjoy acting at the local theatres and an occasional movies for friends. I have 2 lovable dogs named Tabitha and Mia. I am looking forward to a wonderful, exciting, and fun year with my students.
