Welcome to 1st grade at Hospers Elementary! My name is Maria Simmelink and I've been teaching 1st grade since 2007. I've known I've wanted to be a teacher since 1st grade and I can't imagine a better job! I love what I do!
I graduated from MOC Floyd Valley High School in 2002. I attended Northwestern College and graduated in 2006 with an Elementary Education degree and early childhood and reading endorsements.
I am married to Tyler Simmelink. We have one daughter, Hazel, who was born in February of 2009.
I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, camping, scrap booking, playing games, and riding bike.
