Mrs. Acker is a San Gabriel Valley native. She began her Catholic education at St. Elizabeth in Altadena. She was a student there from K-8th grade. After graduating she attended Flintridge Sacred Heart Academy in La Canada. She then went on to receive her Bachelors in Psychology from California State University Northridge. She worked for the public school system for many years and then decided it was the right time to continue her education. She was accepted into the Masters in Education and Credentialing program at Azusa Pacific University where she earned her Masters in Educational and Clinical Counseling and Pupil Personnel Services Credential. It is Mrs. Acker’s first year at Mission and it is a great honor to work with such wonderful young women. She loves to spend time with her husband and three young daughters when she’s not working.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
