Hello, my name is Mrs. Marilyn Simmons. I have worked as a teacher for Chicago Public Schools for 19 years. I’ve taught for the Chicago Archidocese and the suburban school districts; before accepting a position at St. Paul Lutheran School. I am passionate about teaching especially my third and fourth graders. Did I mention that I am also the 3rd-8th grades Math instructor and responsible for our Christian Education Curriculum. Oh my!!!!
I have three wonderful children (Thomas Jr, Brianna and Jalen), and a grandmother of four. I grew up in the church learning the word of God at an early age. In 2013, God called me in the ministry. I have been working as a Minister for the kingdom of God ever since. I am an Associate Pastor at Second Birth Church, and on the board of two other local churches. My role is to help them establish a vision and give guidance of where God would have them to go.
I have a Master Degree in Education from the University of Phoenix. I also hold degrees in Theology and Psychology.
