Mrs. Linda Simons
I was born in New York,and lived most of my school years in Kansas. I have taught for over 20 years staying home with my 3 children until my youngest was of school age. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th as well as being a math facilitator all in CMS. This will be my 7th year at Union Academy. I have taught 5 of my years here at UA in second grade and last year in third looping up with my last group. My 3 children are all grown and I am enjoying this new season of life with my family. My first grandchild was born last September. My husband and I spend most of our free time playing with our two miniature dachshund puppies, Autumn and Amber. I am sooo excited to be in second grade with you all.
I was born and raised in South Florida. I went to Florida Atlantic University and received a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a master's degree in Reading. I taught for 14 years in Florida, K/1 multiage, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and was a K-5 literacy coach. Since moving to North Carolina with my family, my husband and 3 children, I have taught preschool, 4s. As a family, we enjoy spending time together, taking mini trips to the mountains, beach, and Florida to visit family and Disney! This will be my first year at Union Academy and I am so excited to start this second-grade journey with all of you!
