Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Julia Simmons
My name is Julia Simmons. I am currently serving as the part-time Reading Specialist for W. H. Taylor. I retired after 40 years of teaching (14 of which were as a full time Reading Specialist). I got my Bachelor of Science degree from Boston University, a Master’s degree from George Washington University, and an Education Specialist degree from the University of Virginia. I have an NK-4 endorsement, as well as a K-12 endorsement in Reading and a K-12 endorsement in Special Education; however, teaching Reading to first graders is my favorite of all teaching tasks.
When I am not working, I love to paper craft…making cards and creating scrapbooking pages. Singing is another hobby of mine and I have been fortunate enough to sing for thousands in the various church choirs I’ve been a part of.
