• Welcome back to another exciting year of teaching and learning! 

    My name is Michelle Bickford-Matthews and I am extremely excited to be a part of the Simkins family.  Presently I am one of the Exceptional Children's resource teachers who will be working with both 4th and 5th grade students. This is my 31st year of teaching in North Carolina and my 2nd year teaching at Simkins Elementary School.  I grew up in Connecticut and moved to North Carolina where I attended Greensboro College and graduated in 1989 with a BS in Special Education.  I enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with my friends and family.  

    I look forward to meeting you and working together to ensure that your child's educational needs are being met.  Please don't hesitate to call, email, or stop by if you have any questions or concerns.  My room is located on the yellow hallway and the best time to reach me is prior to 7:45 a.m. and after 3:00 p.m. each day.
