Hi there! My name is Hope Simons and I am a third grade teacher at Donald Leonetti Elementary. I have been teaching for 8 years, 4 of which as a third grade teacher in FBISD. My husband and I moved here from our home in New Orleans in July 2014. I attended Louisiana State University (Geaux Tigers!) where I received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Elementary Education. Although I miss my family and friends back home, I consider myself lucky to be working here with such a welcoming faculty and wonderful students whom I look forward to seeing and teaching everyday. When I’m not at school I’m probably either visiting home, exploring Houston, or spending time with my husband, daughter, and pets!
