Degrees and Certifications:
Hello all! My name is Crystal Simpkins. My husband and I planted our seeds in Rincon, Ga after many years of living overseas and moving from state to state.This is due to being an Active Duty military family. My husband has retired now and we are so excited to be part of the Effingham County community. We have 4 amazing children, 2 boys (21 and 13) and 2 girls (17 and 14).
I graduated from University of Phoenix with my 1st Master's degree in Justice and Administration/Management. In 2020, I decided to follow my passion, which was to be part of something greater, which is helping students learn. I went back to school to earn my 2nd Master's, Master's of Arts in Education/Elementary Teacher Education.
I began teaching 1st grade at Ebenezer Elementary school in July 2022. It is the best decision that I have made as of yet.
I love sharing knowledge with children. I enjoy seeing the excitement on their faces when I share fun facts. I enjoy that they are eager to learn and love to learn. It brings joy to my heart to know that the knowledge and wisdom that I share with them will last a lifetime!
I am so excited to have the opportunity to work with your child this year. It is going to be an amazing year for all of us!
