Dr. Akeima Hall

It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the newly appointed assistant principal of Arcadia Elementary! I am incredibly honored to have been chosen to work alongside Dr. Healey and Mrs. Ransford to lead the instructional efforts at Arcadia. We are extremely fortunate to serve such a supportive community of dedicated teachers, involved parents, and diverse learners.

I am Dr. Akeima Hall, wife, mother of two sons, one bonus son, one daughter, one bonus daughter, and grandmother of five. I have a cat whose name is Belle and a dog who lives in heaven and her name is Bella. I love to read, write, listen to music, dance, skate, watch horror films, and bowl. 

My educational background includes a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice from Jackson State University, a Master of Science in Criminal Justice from Chicago State University, a Master of Art in Elementary Education and a Doctorate in Instructional Leadership from Argosy University.

Although I have been in the classroom for 17 years, I find that I am still growing as an instructional leader. I want to “pay forward” the experiences I had as a teacher to the many innovative teachers I serve in our school. Teachers and students will take risks when they know they are supported through timely feedback, high quality resources, and opportunities for growth. I encourage you to join me in supporting a culture of excellence by actively participating in your child's educational experience. I am eager to get to know each of our scholars and leaders.

I look forward to meeting you and your family at Arcadia throughout the year! In addition, please feel welcome to contact me with any praise, concerns, questions, or ideas.


In partnership with you,

Akeima Hall, EdD
