About Us

Welcome to another school year at Akin Road Elementary! My name is Mrs. Nicole Roach. I am the Information Technology Literacy Specialist (ITLS) here at Akin Road Elementary School. I am very excited to help your student grow academically in the media center this year!  I have been teaching for 15 years at the elementary level. I started my career teaching 5th then 6th grade in a contained classroom, but discovered my true passion was to teach research and technology skills so I started working on obtaining a masters degree in library media education. After graduating with my master's degree my career path lead me to Akin Road Elementary school in Farmington. I have enjoyed getting to know all of the great families and students that attend ARE over the past 12 years along with adjusting with the every changing role of a media specialist in our schools. Please feel free to stop by and introduce yourself, you are always welcome in the media center!

Hi, my name is Mrs. Lund.  I started my career as a paraprofessional with the school district in 1987 as a Chapter 1 assistant.  Most of my years were spent working as a Special Education assistant in the EBD and ECSE programs. In May of 2009, I became the assistant in the media center.  My goal as a Information Technology Literacy assistant is to help each student have a successful media experience with their projects and foster a love for reading.  I am looking forward to working with each and every one of the students at Akin Road.
