Simmons, Lindsay - 8th Grade ELA

Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts
Mrs. Simmons

Hello, students, parents and guardians. I am very excited to begin another year here at CAEMS and look forward to working closely with you all to ensure student success in 8th grade Language Arts.

Before working with Buncombe County Schools I taught at Forrest County Agricultural High School in Brooklyn, Mississippi. In 2012, however, my husband and I moved to the great city of Asheville. Once relocated, I started visiting schools all over Buncombe County and was pleased to discover, at each school, a deep level  of dedication and determination to encourage students not only academically, but in other areas of their lives, and ensure each child is prepared for success beyond high school. I knew I had to be a part of BCS and do my part to help students achieve that success.
When I’m not in the classroom, you can find  me camping or hiking in the woods, paddling around in a kayak, or dancing to great tunes at one of the many music festivals in the Asheville and surrounding areas.  
  I firmly believe it is my purpose in life to help each student achieve academic success.  By working together, we CAN attain this goal. Let's have a GREAT year!
