                           Miss Simko

    Welcome to 1st grade!
    I am available by phone from 7:00-7:20 each morning.  The best way to contact me throughout the day is through email.  

    Our Classroom Mission:

    • Miss Simko's 1st grade students will learn math, language arts, science, and social studies in order to prepare for 2nd grade.  We will do this by following directions, sharing ideas, listening, and doing our best.


    About Me:

    This is my 12th year teaching at Celeste Henkel Elementary School. I moved to Charlotte, NC from Cleveland, OH in 2007. I have my Bachelor of Science Degree in Education from Cleveland State University and I also have my Master of Arts Degree in Elementary Education from Gardner-Webb University.  I love being a part of the Celeste family. My favorite subjects include Science and Language Arts. Some of my favorite children's authors include Eric Carle, Peter H. Reynolds, Tomie dePaola, Robert Sabuda, and Chris Van Allsburg. I am also a huge Steph Curry fan.  Go Warriors!!
