Kelli Akers


Guten Tag!  My name is Frau Akers.  My family is originally from Seattle, Washington, but I was raised in Germany.  I attended 10 years of German public school and then transferred to the local American high school.  I completed my undergraduate education at Florida State University where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in German and Multilingual Education.  When my family relocated to the Charleston area, I enrolled at The Citadel and completed my Master’s of Education in the Social Sciences there.


My first years of teaching were at Drayton Hall Middle School where I taught social studies in grades 6-8.  I have been working at West Ashley High School since it opened in 2000.  I teach 10th grade Global Studies and German I-III.  I have also led 4 student travel groups to Europe with my friend and colleague Madame Morris. 


My husband and I have a daughter and son.  Together we live on Johns Island.
