Dear parents and students,

    I would like to welcome you to First Grade. I am Mrs. Sims. I am extremely excited to meet you. This is my seventh year at Power Ranch Elementary. I really enjoy the sense of community that is shown through the Power Ranch families. I look forward to another amazing year in first grade!

     I love teaching and have a strong background in Early Childhood Education. I find joy in watching children become dedicated learners. When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have two beautiful little girls that fill my heart with love and happiness. We enjoy spending time outdoors, shopping, and traveling to new places when we can.

    I am looking forward to an amazing year with your students. I have planned many great learning adventures with your young explorers in mind. We will be trenching into exciting lessons that are  aligned to the state standards. The lessons for each content area have been well thought out and planned based upon the objectives of the standards.

    I am excited to connect with all of the students and families in this class, school, and community. My classroom is a place that values all learning abilities and previous experiences. I am eager to see learning unfold in the collaboration of the students and influences in the classroom.  Feel free to share any resources and experiences that you may bring to enrich our classroom. I welcome volunteers to help with all content areas in the classroom during lessons and centers, field trips, and event planning for celebrations and activities. I value your time and participation during our learning adventure. I understand that the parents are the first teachers and respect any input that you may have for class instruction or your individual child's needs.

    I am thrilled to be a part of the Higley School District and promise to fulfill the motto:

    Connect, Engage, and Inspire!


    Mrs. Sims
