Tammy Simms

Spanish and French Teacher

Hola and bonjour,

My name is Tammy Simms and I teach both Spanish and French at ACHS and I'm also the lead teacher for the French Exchange Trip. I have a true passion for languages, and I hope to inspire each and every one of my students. I'm truly honored to be a part of the wonderful staff at Ankeny Centennial High School.

I received my teaching degree in Spanish, French and ESL from Central College where I had the life-changing opportunity to study abroad in Spain and Mexico. After graduating I loved teaching in the Shawnee Mission School District in Kansas City while my husband finished his Doctorate of Chiropractic. When Centennial opened, I was happy to return home to Ankeny where I could bring my experiences back to where I was inspired to pursue languages.

When I'm not at school I love spending time with my husband and our two kids. I also enjoy boating, traveling, and all things organizational!
