Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Makayla Simson

Hello, my name is Makayla Simson! I recently moved to Texas from Illinois with my husband and two dogs, Addie and Diesel. We have loved the area and are excited to be welcoming our first little boy this year. 

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice from Aurora University and am currently working to receive my Master’s in Social Work with a specialty in children and families at UTA. While working through the program, I found my passion for teaching and received my Texas teaching certification. 

This will be my first year at Ethridge and I am so excited to be an Eagle! In the past, I have taught prek and second grade and I am so happy to be a part of the third grade family this year!
