Simmons, Lindsay - 8th Grade ELA
Welcome to 8th Grade Language Arts
Mrs. Simmons

Hello, students, parents and guardians. I am very excited to begin my fourth 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 fell in love with Erwin Middle. The office staff, teachers and administration were so open and friendly, and their love for and dedication to the students here inspired me so much that I knew I just had to become part of the Erwin family.
When I’m not in the classroom, you can find my husband and 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. Go class of 2022!
