Hello! My name is Tami Simkins and I am very excited to be part of an excellent staff. I moved to Kansas 17 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 20th 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 29 to 9 years old. I am also a grandmother to Bentley, Brooklyn, Brayden and Seraphina. I am very proud of them! I have been teaching online for 10th years. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Communication is essential to success! I am here to help you succeed.
