Mrs. Michelle Sims

Dream big. Work hard. Be kind. 

I am a middle grades teacher through and through. Some think that makes me a bit nuts, but I simply love seventh graders. This is my sixteenth year teaching, but my third year at Hickory Ridge Middle. I am excited to be part of the Maverick herd. 

Although teaching English is important, learning to be responsible, kind-hearted, global citizens is even more crucial. We will laugh, learn, and grow together this year.


  • Learning from Home:


    As we have all tried to adjust to the changes the COVID-19 situation has presented, we are all learning as we go. Thank you to everyone who has tried their best to balance family, school, and work from home. Monday of next week, March 30th, is our "get back to business" day. Your teachers will begin teaching remotely using their LMS (Learning Mangaement System). Avengers are accustomed to Google Classroom, so that will be familiar. However, this will feel new. We are all learning how to navigate this "new normal," so be patient with your teachers and patient with yourself. If you get confused, ask for help. We will figure this out together. I am excited to learn with you agian.
