Degrees and Certifications:

Dr. Akima Anderson

I moved to Cedar Hill, TX from Chicago, IL July of 2015. Back home in Chicago, I spent the last six years as an Assistant Principal of one of Chicago's toughest high schools in the Englewood community. I earned my Bachelor's degree in mathematics from Loyola University in Chicago. I continued my studies and earned my master's degreen in teaching from National-Louis University located in Chicago. After teaching for four years, I applied to the University of Illinois at Chicago's doctorate program and was accepted. I am proud to announce that I completed the program and earned my doctorate degree in Urban Education and Leadership.

As the youngest of five, a mother of four, and a wife, I am proud to have accomplished three degrees. I want to be a positive role model for my family as well as my students. I am a life long learner and have spent many years in education. Teaching is my passion and the best gift anyone has ever given me is knowledge. Learning is the one gift when given, it keeps on giving and no one can ever take it from you.
