Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Cassie Acker

Hi there! My name is Cassie Acker.  I am a brand new employee in Livonia Public Schools, so this is my first year here at Johnson.  I worked in my previous school district  for 18 years (Holy moly! Has it really been that long?!?).  A majority of my career has been spent as a Language Arts teacher.  I taught high school and middle school English for several years before shifting into my role as Library Media Specialist. 

I earned my bachelor’s degree in English from Eastern Michigan University, and my masters in Library and Information Science from Wayne State University.  I graduated from EMU in 2001, and WSU in 2005.

I’m happily married to an awesome guy named Tom, and we have two beautiful children, Ava and Caleb.  Ava just started middle school and our little guy is in 1st grade.  I love my kids dearly, and I often share funny stories about them with my students. We recently moved into a new house in Wixom, which is very exciting.  I’m having a blast decorating our new home.

When I’m not working I love to spend time with friends and family, travel, read, shop, go to the movies, and do arts and crafts like scrapbooking and upcycling furniture.  I love trying new things, and I’m always open to new adventures.
