Jessica Simmons

Science Mentor / Interventionist


I was raised in Omaha, attending and graduating from Omaha North High School. I have experience in mostly non-traditional school environments. I feel fortunate for the opportunity to work with smaller class sizes.

Roles at Quest Forward Academy

I have been working with Quest Forward Academy since 2018. First, I served as a substitute mentor and a mentor for Drama. I enjoy most working individually with students on math, especially those that struggle with it. I consider it a privilege to encourage understanding and perseverance. I have always had to work hard at math so believe that makes me well suited for working with those who also have to work hard at it.

Before Quest Forward Academy
  • I served as a Science and Biology teacher for St. Barnabas Classical Academy.
  • I worked with a home-education cooperative starting and running the drama program.
  • I have tutored home-educated students in various subjects.
