Welcome to music and art! I absolutely love my job and often tell people it's like a day at camp every day in my classroom! I hope to instill the love of singing, dancing, and creating into all my students. I believe we are born to do these things. (After all, look at how many small children sing songs and/or color!)
First and Third Quarters are MUSIC
Second and Fourth Quarters are ART
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Email is the easiest way to reach me.  
With respect,
Ms. Akin
We are now working on art elements and concepts: line, shape, form, color, value, texture, and space. Please remember art is a PROCESS; it is not about the product or project they bring home. Therefore, at times, you may be wondering what it is your child is bringing home, but we are working on better understanding the art elements in order to express our creativity! 
 We will be getting together the morning of Friday, December 19th at 9:00 in the gym to sing some caroling songs together. The song lyrics can be found in the tab on the right labeled "song lyrics." Scroll down until you see the winter caroling songs. Thanks! 
Another date to keep in mind if you are a family member of a first or second grader is MAY 16. On Saturday evening, May 16, 2015, we will have our bi-annual district arts festival at Rochester High School. More information will be coming out as it approaches...but save the date! 

A BIG THANK YOU to all my students and families; past and present. I was voted SWW Family Magazine's "Favorite Music Instructor!" My heart is full and I am very happy! It is an honor to get to do a job I love doing each and every day! SING ON!
