For Parents

       As you are all well aware, due to our classroom sizes being far over caps, we are hiring another fifth grade teacher here at Simmons.  I wanted to let you all know that the decision to add another teacher was not an easy one to make.  It was very tough for Mrs. Burchett and myself to find out that some of our students, who we were just starting to get to know, would be switched to another homeroom.
      However, after meeting Mrs. Engelhard (the long term sub), our difficulties were definitely eased!  She is a fabulous certified teacher who has been a part of the Simmons family for a long time and is now ready to let her talents be put to use in the classroom.  If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to email me at
       I also realized that we still get to be your child's teacher for most of the day... whether it be in Social Studies, Mathematics, or Language Arts.  We're not going anywhere; we're just part of a bigger and better team!  We're still looking forward to working with your child on a daily basis... and that's still cool!
