MVA Math and Business Teacher
Hello! My name is Tami Simkins and I am very excited to be part of an excellent staff. I moved to Kansas 15 years ago. I have lived in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and California. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Secondary Mathematics Education from Louisiana State University in Shreveport and my Masters of Arts Degree in Education through Baker University. This is my 18th year of teaching mathematics. I taught for 4 years in Texas before I started teaching in Kansas. I have always wanted to be a teacher and I love it! Math is my favorite subject and I love to help students learn to be successful in mathematics. I also enjoy spending time with family, creating scrapbook pages, reading, country dancing, and holidays. I am a proud mother of 7 children. Brianna, Chris, Madalyn, Megan, Colby, Caitlyn, and Cooper. Their ages range from 27 to 8 years old. I am also a grandmother to Bentley and Brooklyn. I am very proud of them! I am very excited to begin my fifth year of teaching online. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Communication is essential to success! I am here to help you succeed.
