Mrs. Kerrie Simmons
Welcome to the 6th and 8th grade! My name is Mrs. Simmons, and I am so excited to be your English as a Second Language teacher this year. This school year marks my seventh year as a teacher and my 3rd year as a Maverick. I am a graduate of the University of Houston-Downtown, where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English. I am an avid reader, and I adore researching historical literature. Some of my other favorite pastimes include watching the Los Angeles Lakers play, watching movies, and spending time with my family.
This year you can look forward to exploring various types of literature, including reading novels, narrative nonfiction, poetry, nonfiction, and other genres. We will also tackle new reading and writing strategies and explore grammar, usage, and mechanics. Additionally, we will create writing pieces that are imaginative and important to you, and we will be imitating the craft of our favorite writers.
I have high expectations for my students, and I look forward to a great 2022-2023 school year!
Go Mavericks! #Maverick Made. Maverick Proud!
