Simmons, Ben
SCHOOL - This is my 10th year to teach 7th grade science. I taught for 4 years in Pell City before teaching at RMS. I have a bachelors degree in Biology with a minor in Chemistry. I have a master's degree in general science education. I have coached many sports in the past but mainly girls basketball at RMS.
Personal - I have been married to Brittany Simmons for 7 years. We had a baby boy, Jason Todd, Aug. 21st of 2013.
CLASSROOM - I love the outdoors and as a science teacher I try to move my classroom outside as much as possible. Throughout the year in 7th grade we take several field trips (Cathedral Caverns, Anniston Museum of Natural History) and include many outdoor learning experiences (Stream Ecology Analysis Project, Nighttime Frog Hunt, and Tree ID Unit).
