Welcome to Fifth Grade Language Arts!

    My name is Jeff Akin, and I am the fifth grade language arts teacher at Brookside School. I started my teaching career in 1996 in Greenwich, Connecticut. I was a teacher at Old Greenwich School from 1996 to 2001. I moved to New Jersey in 2001 and have been at Brookside School ever since.
    My overall goal is to provide my students with a structured and positive learning environment.  Your children will be challenged on a daily basis, and I will strive to help them reach their fullest potential. I am looking forward to an exciting year.

    If you ever have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at anytime. You can click on my E-Mail link below or call me. I will get back to you as soon as I can.
