Anne Cromwell, Principal - Ashby Elementary School: " Mr. Simmons has worked with our elementary school. The students absolutely loved him. He worked very well with our students who are on the Autism Spectrum. He is soft spoken and has so many talents that the students just adore, especially his guitar playing. In our After-School program, where there are students of different grade levels, he is able to keep their attention all while providing a harmonious atmosphere. "
