Krista Simmons- 6th Grade

Education:  Hope College:  Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary English Education

Teaching Experience:  4 years

Years at St. John’s:  This is my third year at St. John’s!

Favorite Bible Verse:  Proverbs 31:25 – “She is clothed in strength and dignity and can laugh without fear of the future.”

Teaching is tied so closely to hope and love. I have a strong hope for my students not only to reach new heights in academics but also to grow as followers of Christ. I have so much love for the families I serve. I believe St. John’s is a place where I can use teaching to help further His kingdom with each new day.

I love getting coffee with friends, reading, journaling, being outside, decorating, and listening to music.

One fun fact:  I studied abroad in England! Also, my husband and I got married in June and went on our honeymoon to North Carolina.
