My name is Mrs. Simon, and I am a fifth grade math and science teacher at River Dell Elementary School. This is my sixth year as an educator and my fourth year teaching at River Dell. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from the University of South Carolina. I realize that teaching your child is a privilege, as well as a tremendous responsibility. It is my goal to provide your child with a motivating and educationally challenging learning experience in my classroom.
Keeping the lines of communication open with you is very important to me. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. The best way to reach me is via email. You can also send me a private message on our Dojo page. I am available for conferences regarding your child's progress from 8:10-8:25 a.m., during my planning period from 9:15-9:50 a.m., and 4:00 -5:00 p.m. by appointment on school days.
I am looking forward to a wonderful year.

Every summer many students go off on vacation before turning in all of their library books. We encourage students and their families to bring in missing library books over the summer as soon as the items are found to prevent possible loss or damage and to allow the media center to complete the end-of-the-year inventory.
