Meet Your Teacher

Ms. Simmons, MS.Ed.

My name is Ms. Simmons and I will be your child's 4th grade teacher for the 2017-2018 school year.

The 2017-18 school year will be my ninth
 year teaching.  In my spare time I enjoy spending time with 
my family, shopping, and watching sports.  I'm an AVID reader.

I believe that all children are willing and able to learn when equipped with the right resources and caring people in their lives.   
I have high expectations for all students. 
Accepting failure and the word "can't" is not an option.  This year I hope 
that you and I can work as a team to set your child on a bright 
path to being "College & Career Ready"!!

If you need to contact me you may do so via REMIND or email

Once again, welcome and I'm looking forward to a great 2017-2018 school year.
