Mrs. Mary Simmons
I have always had a passion for history. I loved learning about the past and how it has shaped the way we live today. It amazes me that history is all around us. The buildings that make our town historic to the rivers show how Native Americans once lived in our area. To find history, all you have to do is look. I went to Monmouth University where I earned my degree in History/Political Science, Secondary Education and I also minored in Information technology. I also have my Masters in Education with a focus on Curriculum and Instruction: Learning Technologies.
My goal as a Social Studies teacher is to make history come to life and that my students see and share my enthusiasm for the content! The class consists of creative projects and student-centered learning activities that allow the students to connect to the material and enjoy the classroom experience.
