Welcome! My name is Mr. Joseph M. Akosi and I am excited to be a part of Sts. Joseph and John School. I began my career in teaching Art and Physical Education at St. Anthony of Padua School - Lorain in 2006 and became Principal in 2012. I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Bowling Green State University and my Masters of Education from Ashland University. I enjoy spending time with my wife Amy and our two active boys, Luke and Easton.

As a building leader, it is highly important to be involved in the classroom daily and have a vested interest with all children in the building. I am a firm believer that The Number One Goal in Life is to Get to Heaven and to be able to get to Heaven, we need to first be disciples of Jesus Christ here on earth. Here at Sts. Joseph and John School, we will strive to be active disciples of Jesus. Serve and learn projects throughout the school year will instill students with the Catholic values of how to become active disciples of Jesus Christ within the community. In addition, as a school community we will continue to carry out our Mission of Values, Academic Excellence and Service.

Mr. Joseph M. Akosi
