Kelly Simonsen's Bio
6th Grade Teacher
Hello! My name is Kelly Simonsen, and I could not be more thrilled to be teaching 6th grade at Advantage Arts Academy this year! This is my tenth year as a teacher, and the upper grades are my specialty! I am a proud BYU Cougar with experience teaching upper grades in Utah and Texas.
I have three children and three cats! Our family enjoys exploring Utah waterfalls and going to the water park. I enjoy home DIY projects, playing the piano, and reading. I absolutely adore art history and went on a magical study abroad during college to study and see all the masterpieces Europe has to offer! Disneyland is my absolute favorite place to be, and I can't get back soon enough.
When it comes to teaching, I love matching kids with books and turning them into readers. I am a Google Certified Educator and can't wait to get started on teaching my students real life tech skills!
I look forward to an amazing year at Advantage Arts Academy!
