My name is Karen Simmons. I am a graduate of Anderson University with certification in both Early Childhood and Elementary Education. This is my sixth year teaching kindergarten and my at fifth at Nevitt Forest. Teaching is a rewarding job and I feel privileged to be allow to teach your children, I am amazed at how much they learn during their kindergarten year.I am married and we have a son and two daughters. My son is married. He and my daughter-n-law have given me my first grandson, so I have become a Nana. Our family also includes a sweet, active and cute shih-tzu. Some of my favorite things to do is spending time with my family, reading and traveling. The beach is one of my favorite places.
