All About Me

Hello and welcome to my page! My name is Katie Akins and this is my third year teaching 1st grade at John Jones Elementary. I'm so excited for my first year teaching first grade! I graduated from Jacksonville State University with my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I am also a Highly Qualified teacher. 

I've lived in the Southside community my entire life and am well acquainted with the John Jones community. I'm so excited to be a part of this fantastic family! 

I am the interim youth pastor at Flow Church in Ashville and also help lead worship on the praise team. I love using music in the classroom. My brother and I write worship music for children and adults and love to reach people through our music. 

I absolutely love teaching and cannot wait to get to know your little ones. I will pour my heart and soul into this class and will do my very best to make sure they are successful and learning every day!
