Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Simmons

I am excited to have a great year with you!  I am an Arizona native, albeit, not the Phoenix metro area.  This is my seventh year teaching, and my second at Mountain Ridge.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology from the University of Arizona, and a Master’s degree from Arizona State University in Secondary Education.  I spent 6 years in the U.S. NAVY as a Hospital Corpsman, and have worked in many different career fields.  In my down time, you could find me and my family enjoying everything AZ has to offer, from snowboarding the slopes, wakeboarding the lakes, hunting, camping and hiking in between!  You might even find me just hanging out with this girl playing video games.


Bonus if you can guess the breed!
