Heather Simmons

Global Teacher

Hello! My name is Heather Simmons, and I am a Global Teacher with the Dual Diploma Program. I live in the panhandle of Florida with my husband and three children. We enjoy riding horses and spending time on the water. I received my Master’s Degree in Education from Troy University in Troy, Alabama. I am certified to teach English Language Learners, English 6-12 grades, Social Sciences 6-12 grades, and Media Specialist PK-12 grades. I have a passion for seeing my students learn, excel, and succeed. I was honored to be named the AVE Dual Diploma Global Teacher of the Year for the 2019-2020 school year.

It is my belief that education can change the world. By providing my students with an engaging and effective learning environment, I am not just teaching them a skill but helping students become lifelong learners.
