Mrs. Christyn Simmons
I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Montevallo with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education (K-6). Upon graduation, I was also named the Senior Elite for the Elementary and Secondary Education Department.
This will be my third year teaching second grade at Creek View. Throughout college I was provided with the opportunity to teach in many different grade levels. I have spent time in kindergarten, first, third, and fourth grade classrooms. I completed my internship at Creek View in first grade. During this time, I absolutely fell in love with the faculty, staff, and students at this school!
I have been an Alabaster resident since I was in kindergarten. I attended all of the local schools and graduated as a Valedictorian from Thompson High School in 2011. From there, I attended the University of Montevallo where I graduated Summa Cum Laude in May of 2015. Throughout my time in college, I was able to remain part of the Alabaster community by coaching TYF cheerleading squads and also teaching cheerleading classes at Meadow View and Creek View. This community has had, and continues to have, such a positive impact on my life and I hope to have that same impact on my current and future students.
In my free time, I love to spend time with family and friends, coach cheerleading, travel, attend/watch sporting events, craft, and shop. I also love finding new ideas/activities to try in my classroom. I have two dogs and two cats who also receive a lot of my attention. I have a passion for teaching and I truly feel like this is what I am meant to be doing. I am looking forward to a great year! As always, it's a great day to be a Warrior!
