Teachers change lives every day

Thank you, Mrs. Simms

Teacher's school: Ascension Collegiate

Mrs. Simms has been my math teacher for 3 years and throughout those 3 years she has become more than just a teacher to me, she’s become someone I can rely on, a mother figure, an amazing friend and much more! Whenever I talk about my teachers I always say how great she is and tell everyone who has the opportunity and privilege of having her that they’re very lucky to have such a caring, understanding and hard working teacher.

When I came to Ascension in 2013, I hated math. It always seemed like a chore or a task for me and I never thought I would be good at it. However Mrs. Simms changed my outlook on math, and today I’ve taken and succeeded in advanced and university courses taught by her.

Besides being an unbelievable teacher, Mrs. Simms has been a motivator, a stress reliever, a committed educator and friend. And thanks to Mrs. Simms, I wouldn’t be where I was today, and I cannot explain how grateful I am to have gotten the opportunity of having her as a teacher.

My 3 years of high school is coming to an end and I will take the lessons I’ve learned from Mrs. Simms wherever I go!
