Teaching career...

Welcome! My name is Madelyn Simmons and I am the Emotional Support Teacher at the Elementary Center. I love working with children and find their honesty and humor infectious. I have been teaching for 10 years. I started in a local Early Intervention program working with preschool aged children with emotional concerns. From there I taught middle school students placed in Alternative Education. When that program disbanded, I took a position as a Secondary English/Special Education teacher at a local Charter School. Currently I am in my 7th year at Wattsburg and I have taught regular education to 4th graders and Special Education, K-4.

Currently I have students in every grade which affords me the opportunity to partner with teachers and students in diverse settings to ensure a successful school year.

 

In my spare time...

I privately tutor students and give piano and guitar lessons for beginners. I love art in all forms. My hobbies include playing the piano, writing songs, playing the guitar, painting and drawing, writing and creating. I also enjoy home improvement projects, refurbishing old furniture, etc.
