Heather Simmons

Lead Global Teacher

My name is Heather Simmons, and I am excited to be a Lead Global Teacher with the Dual Diploma Program. I graduated with a Master’s Degree in Education and Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration, both from Troy University. I am certified to teach English Language Learners, English, Social Science, and Media Specialist PK-12 grades. I have always had a passion for learning and supporting students in their journey to academic success. I’ve had the privilege to serve as a PLC leader, Professional Development trainer, Mentor, Curriculum Developer, and Global Teacher. I was honored to have received the AVE Dual Diploma Global Teacher of the Year Award for the 2019-2020 school year.  


I live in the panhandle of Florida with my husband Josh and three children, Reagan, Amelia, and Lucas. We love riding horses on our farm and going to the beach.
