Welcome to Ms. Akre's Teacher Page
I was raised in San Lorenzo and graduated from Arroyo High School. I love going camping and my favorite place to be is at the beach. I also love crafting and my favorite thing to do in class for brain breaks is dance! I teach because these children are our future and to be a part of their learning and growing is very rewarding, and like most, the “ah-ha” moments that I witness daily, remind me of why I chose to be an educator in the first place.
“Education is the most powerful weapon which you could use to change the world” Nelson Mandela
I attended California State University, East Bay and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Liberal Studies followed by my teaching credential. I received my Masters in Teaching Leadership from Saint Mary’s College of California.
District Tools I Use
I take attendance using Aeries. You can stay on top of attendance through the Aeries Family Portal or Aeries App
I use Aeries to generate report cards. Families can view report cards through the Aeries Family Portal.
I have not started to use the Aeries Standards-based Gradebook, but will update my Teacher Page when I begin using it. If you are subscribed to this page, you will be notified via email.
Sangha Interactive App:
I will be relying on the Sangha app to communicate with families in a protected, password-protected environment. Please download the app and log in using the parent-guardian email that was used for enrollment or data confirmation.
I have not yet started to use Google Classroom. I will update my Teacher Page when I do.
