Ms. Simoes


I knew that I wanted to be a teacher since the third grade.  So, at 17 years old, I was off to Johnson State College to start my training.  That was back in 1978.  I graduated in '82 with the intention of teaching upper elementary school.  I taught first at College Street School in Middlebury; then I taught 6th, 3rd and 5th grade in Cornwall as long-term subbing positions opened up.  Everyone I subbed for came back, and so, I came to Mount Abe in 1986.  I have been teaching here, in various capacities, 
ever since.  I started as a Chapter 1 reading teacher.  I then moved into a reading teacher position on the "Maroon Crew."  Later, I became dual-certified and so, taught geography and history.  With shifting enrollments and faculty, I moved into an English position for a while.  Now that we are with new teams, I once again am teaching social studies.  I am home again!
