Ms. Yolonda Simon - ESS/Chemistry
Hello LEHS FamiLE!!!!
My name is Yolonda Simon. I'm the teacher formerly known as Mrs. Weatherspoon. I moved here from Central Louisiana (Alexandria/Pineville area), where I taught at Bolton High School for 14 years. I graduated from Dillard University with a B.S. in Biology/Pre-Med. I received my M.Ed. in Secondary Ed./Biology from the University of South Alabama in Mobile, Alabama. In previous years, I taught AP Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science, Forensic Science, Physics, IPC, and Aquatic Science. This year, I will be teaching Earth/Space Science and Chemistry.
My family is everything to me. I have two adult sons, Camaron and Earl. I have two awesome younger siblings, who are also educators. With both of my parents being retired educators, educating others is in our blood.
I enjoy reading, traveling, and trying new exciting things. During the summer, I love attending challenging professional development opportunities. This summer, I was able to fly a Piper Warrior II plane during Air Camp!!! I'm also a foodie and love museums and parks. My favorite organisms are butterflies, chameleons, and "Big" cats.
