Ms. Koleceia Simmons

Hello! My name is Koleceia Simmons. I am excited to begin my ninth year here at Athens Intermediate! I graduated from Cherokee High School in 2005. I continued my education at Northwest Shoals Community College, completing my Bachelor's in Elementary Education (K-6) at Athens State University in 2009.

I am originally from Tuscumbia, but I do consider Athens my home away from home! I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, shopping, reading, and meeting new people. I am a member of Nazareth Primitive Baptist Church in Barton, AL (the community in which I was raised). 

Every since I was a little girl, I dreamed of becoming a teacher. My inspiration came from my grandmother, who is a retired 4th grade teacher, and my 3rd grade teacher. My 3rd grade teacher helped to build my confidence as a writer and a student. I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my gift of connecting with children and inspiring them to be the best version of themselves. I believe that ALL children can learn when met where they are and nutured.
