Mrs. Debbie Simmons
I am the new addition to the 5th-grade team. My name is Deborah Simmons and I am thrilled to be teaching Social Studies here in Hartselle. 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. Our cute, yet lively, dog Romeo; he’s our third child. As a family, we love traveling to anywhere and experiencing new cultures. We have been overseas several times and love the Carribean islands.
