Hi there!! I'm Ms. Simms
"I just like to smile...Smiling's my favorite"- Buddy the Elf
 Grade 5 ELA/SS

Hi there! Welcome to 5th grade! I am new to the district and am so very happy to be home here at Hughes. This will be my 12th year teaching and I am very excited to meet your kiddos. I too will have my children here at Hughes, as it truly is a wonderful place to be!

My certifications include: Interdisciplinary Studies Grades 1-8, Special Education, and English as a Second Language, Reading, and Instructional Management. I also have a Master’s Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. As a fierce autism advocate with two special needs children, your kiddos will be very well taken care of in my class.
