• Hi, my name is Andrea Simmons and I am excited to be teaching your fifth graders this year. I cannot wait to get to know you and your families. 

    Having moved from California last year, my husband, three daughters, our yellow lab Biscuit and I are now proud to be Arizonans. My husband Brian works in data analytics for AAA Insurance, and my daughters are all attending schools in the district - Hannah a sophomore at Sandra Day O’Connor High, Grace a seventh grader at Hillcrest Middle, and Sariah a fourth grader at Inspiration Mountain Elementary.

    Away from school, my hobbies include reading, hiking our local mountains, traveling, and baking. Our family enjoys playing board games, watching movies, and swimming in our new pool. I am looking forward to getting to know each of my students, helping them build on their strengths, and learning together this school year.
