Ms. Paula Simmons
Over the past 26 years I have taught a wide variety of grades at different schools throughout our district. This is my seventh year at Aiken Elementary. While at Aiken El I taught Second Grade for four years and I was a reading interventionist for 3rd through 5th grade students for one year. The 2018-2019 school year will be my second year in preschool at Aiken El. I have had the privilege of teaching and coordinating the Preschool Program, teaching First, second, and preschool, Writing Lab, and Reading Recovery.
I am so excited to be working with our youngest learners here at Aiken Elementary. The energy and passion that preschoolers have for school is so exciting each and every day!
