Hello My Name Is...

Mrs. Kacie Akin


I have always wanted to be a teacher.  I graduated from ASU's Multilingual Multi-Cultural program in 2009.  I have been teaching in the Creighton School District since then and Machan has been my home since 2010.  I began as a 5th grade teacher and, within a year, I was able to move into the position that I really wanted - Math!  I love how there is only one solution to a math problem, but many ways to arrive at a solution.  My personal mission is to support and encourage students to develop their math skills and change beliefs for those who believe, "I'm not good at math."

I grew up in Denver, CO and moved to Phoenix in 2000.  I have traveled throughout much of the U.S. and visited Mexico, the Bahamas, France, and Germany.  Before buying our home in central Phoenix, I lived all over the valley.  I had numerous job experiences while working my way through college.  I met my husband Aaron working at a construction company here in the valley.  He served two tours in Iraq as a Marine and is now a suba-diving instructor pursuing a Nursing career.  Carter is our beautiful, healthy, creative son who loves Legos, History and our beloved, sweet, service dog Milo.  We recently adopted two new members to our household - my 15 year-old nephew Jordan (the athlete) and a Doberman puppy, Sasha.  We enjoy hiking, baseball, camping, snorkeling and scuba-diving.
