Welcome to the SVA Staff Directory!
504/MTSS Coordinator/Literacy Interventionist
This is my first year at SkyView and I am so exited to be here! After retiring as an elementary classroom teacher, I am not ready to give up my love of working with students and teachers. I am the 504/MTSS Coordinator, as well as the Literacy Intervention teacher. My daughter, Danielle Akin, is the 6th grade English teacher at SkyView! I love spending time with my family, being outdoors and traveling – especially if it includes a beach!

High School Teacher
As a lifelong lover of literature, I’m passionate about helping students discover how to understand and think about the stories they read. I enjoy reading, writing poetry, acting, and watching TV and movies.

I am excited for my second year as part of the Business Office. I worked in higher education for eight years, and after going into the private sector for another 8 years, I decided it was time to return to the education setting, as this is my passion. I enjoy the behind-the-scenes work that happens in the Business Office, providing support to the amazing teachers we have in the building! I’ve had the privilege to be in the classroom subbing for a couple of years, and I also joined the Spanish department for 1 year. Both my kids attend SkyView, and this is our 9th year here. I enjoy spending time with my family when I’m not at work.
