Second Grade Teacher
Siegrist Elementary

Welcome to Mrs. Simon's class website! I'm looking forward to a year full of learning, reaching our goals, and having fun! The 2020-2021 school year will be my 17th year teaching. I've taught 2nd grade at Siegrist Elementary for my entire teaching career. I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, with a minor in Early Childhood from -Northwest Missouri State University, and a Master of Arts in Education from Baker University. This year I will be teaching one of the 2nd grade virtual classes. It will be a new and exciting experience!

I believe education is a collaboration between the teacher, the family, and the student. Each is important to the success of the student. As the African proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child". I look forward to collaborating with you this year.

I'm Texas born and raised. My family still lives there and we're blessed to have the chance to visit often. I moved to Missouri in 2000 to attend Northwest Missouri State University and have lived here ever since. I've been married to my wonderful husband, Nick, for 15 years. We have two joyful, energetic, and loving kiddos. Anna is 12 and in seventh grade this year. Cade is 9 and in fourth grade this year. We love soccer, football, wrestling, and archery right now. They sure keep us on our toes and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I'm really looking forward to meeting each and every one of you. I can't wait for an amazing year!
