Ms. Samantha Watson

Hello Akin Frogs!

My name is Ms. Watson and I am the English Language Arts/Reading Resource & Inclusion Special Education teacher.  This is my 7th year teaching and my 5th year as an Akin frog!  I am originally from Kansas and attended the University of Kansas for 2 years before moving to Texas.  GO KU!!!!!!!!  I have two wonderful daughters, Zoë and Jade.   In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family!  

I am excited to begin a new school year at Akin Elementary! I am a graduate from Texas Woman's University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology. I have my Master of Education degree in Special Education from Grand Canyon University.  I am currently working on my Master of Education degree in School Counseling at Texas Tech.  I have 8 years experience in resource and inclusion through special education in grades K-5.  My passion is helping my students learn, grow, feel successful and reach their highest potential.  If you have any questions or concerns about your child this school year, please feel free to contact me.

This is going to be an amazing school year!!!
