Pre-Kindergarten Teacher and Division Chair

Early Childhood

Molly Simmons

As a PreKindergarten teacher of over ten years, Molly has taught within an emergent curriculum style for most of her career. With a master’s degree in Early Childhood Education from Erikson Institute, Molly only grows each year in her passion for family connection and Project-Based Learning. Molly was a keynote panelist at the International Design Conference this summer and will be presenting this fall with The Alliance for Early Childhood and at the NAEYC and ISACS annual conferences on using documentation and family engagement in early childhood education. This winter Molly will have an article published in NAEYC’s journal on using literacy practices with preschoolers. In her free time, Molly finds a balance between eating the best food in Chicago and running the marathon each fall.
