Ms. Sims is excited to work at Equitas Academy #3 as a 2nd grade teacher! She was drawn to our scholar’s enthusiasm, incredible teachers, and strong community. Before working at Equitas, Ms. Sims worked as a middle school english teacher in Temple City and as a second grade teacher in Santa Monica. She got her Bachelors Degree in Education at Ole Miss (The University of Mississippi). She graduated on the chancellor’s honor role and in the Kappa Delta Pi honors society. There she obtained her credentials in elementary education, K-12 history, english, and mild to moderate special education. Ms. Sims ended up at Ole Miss after working for Habitat for Humanity on the coast of Mississippi. While working for Habitat, she built houses for those who had lost their homes during Hurricane Katrina. In her spare time she enjoys searching for good restaurants, drinking lots of coffee, planning vacations, and hiking with her dog Ellie. Ms. Sims cannot wait to meet her new scholars and families at Equitas Academy #3 and inspire young minds in her classroom!
