Mrs. Sheila Simone - First Grade Teacher

Welcome!
I graduated from the University of Mount Olive with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have a Master’s Degree in Special Education from Liberty University and received my core knowledge certification in mild to moderate credentials.

I taught from early childhood education to the second-grade level. I have also worked as a teacher from different countries in another subject such as English, Science, and History. I have taught in Mexico, Thailand, and the Philippines. These countries taught me lessons about embracing different cultures, listening and opening my heart to the children, and, most of all, celebrating for being a part of diversity. I have also studied in a multicultural setting that significantly impacted my perspective of our being one nation and one foundation built by our differences, beliefs, values, and traditions.

During my spare time, I enjoy reading, walking, and exploring nature. My husband and I enjoy riding a bike during the weekend. I am involved in the family ministry and the American Sign Language (ASL) group. Classical music is my passion besides traveling as I play the piano once in a while. I believe that finding ourselves must start in our community.

“Education is not an end in itself; it is a means to develop a response to our calling in life.”
