Mrs. Debbie Simmons
Hey there, I'm Debbie Simmons and I am thrilled to be teaching Social Studies here in Hartselle. I have been at the Intermediate School since October 2019! I have a degree in Elementary Education from the University of South Florida. Go Bulls! I have taught 4th and 5th grade for several years in Tampa. I was also an Intervention teacher for 9 years. I worked with small groups in reading and math from Kindergarten to 5th grade.
I was born and raised in Tampa and that’s where I met my husband, Jimmy. He is from Decatur. We have twins; Andrew and Samantha. Both attend Hartselle high school. This is Andrew and Samantha's senior year!!! Our cute, yet lively, dog, Romeo, is our third child. As a family, we love traveling anywhere and experiencing new cultures. We have been overseas several times and love the Carribean islands.
