About the Teachers

Mr. Simcox

Hey Mr. Simcox here. I know this is a crazy year but I am so excited to be your ELA teacher!

Other than teaching, I like to be with my family, be outside, I coach gymnastics and martial arts in the evenings also!

I moved to many different states when I was young, but mostly I grew up in a small town in South Dakota.

My favorite food is steak with bell peppers, green beans, and garlic mashed potatoes.

Ms. Bell

Hi this is Ms. Bell. I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you! A little bit about me:

I was born in England.

Snacks and naps are my favorite hobbies.

I love wearing interesting socks, and glitter is my favorite color.

Hygge is one of my favorite things (look it up!)
