Staff Shoutout

We are excited to recognize members of our staff going above & beyond for our students and schools! A colleague nominated Natalie Akin for this week’s Staff Shoutout! Ms. Akin is a Curriculum Facilitator at East Village Elementary, but if you’ve been at eStem for a while, you may remember her as a 1st grade teacher when we started! Ms. Akin is a perfect example of the eStem way – she is committed to supporting teachers and students, and she does so with a positive attitude and a smile!

When we asked Ms. Akin what she loves about working with teachers and students, she said, “Looking back on my 17 years in education, I have to say the part I love most is the learning and growing that comes from facing and persevering through challenges. Developing a growth mindset and going on the journey of learning with students, teachers, and school family is something I have grown to treasure.” She thinks the best thing about working at eStem is the collaboration! All teachers and staff have the same goal – doing whatever it takes to help our students grow and succeed!

We see you do this every day, Ms. Akin, and we are so thankful to have you (back) at eStem!
