A new Panther this year, Mr. Simmons is excited to join the team of West Park Counselors. Prior to West Park, Mr. Simmons was the Counselor and Director of Student Support at a 6-12 charter school in the LA area. He has a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy and Master of Arts in School Counseling from California State University, Dominguez Hills.
Mr. Simmons desires to see all students become active and engaged life-long learners. One of his goals is to foster positive connections for students in their relationships with one another, with their teachers, their families and with their learning.
In his spare time, Mr. Simmons enjoys hiking and camping with his wife and 3 kids. He is also an avid guitar player and is always looking for an opportunity to make some music with his friends.
