Lindsay Simmons

Lead Teacher Yellow Rockets

Lindsay was born and raised in Cary, even attending Greenwood Forest Children’s Center when she was a child! She graduated from Elon University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education in 2010. After a few years of teaching elementary school, she moved to Greensboro to work in college admissions. While working at Greensboro College, she completed several courses in their TESOL Master’s program before having her own children and deciding to become a preschool teacher. It was then that she fell in love with teaching little ones. She loves teaching preschool because she gets to show our young learners how exciting school can be! She says the sense of wonder at this age is amazing to witness. She strives to create a classroom environment that encourages children to use that wonder to explore, ask questions, and enjoy the process of learning. After teaching preschool for 3 years in Greensboro, she recently relocated back to Wake County and is excited to join GFCC.

Lindsay lives in Cary with her husband of 11 years, 2 young children, and 2 mini goldendoodles. In her spare time, she likes to row, hike with her family, and bake.
