Ms. Tamla Simmons

It is with great pleasure and excitement to introduce myself as your son/daughter’s science educator for the 2023-2024 academic school year. 

I’m a proud alumnus of the College of Pharmacy and Health Science as well as the Barabara Jordan-Mickey Leland School of Public Affairs, both at Texas Southern University. I’m licensed through the Texas Medical Board and have served on the Advisory Board for Alpha 1 antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency for rare diseases for over 20 years. Last year was my first year at Jack Yates as well as my first year in Public Education.  I was recognized for my effort and dedication to the students and was Beginning Teacher of the Year.  

I’m looking forward to working with each of my students and their families this school year. If you have any questions or concerns about your son/daughter’s mastery of the content, please do not hesitate to contact me via email and I will respond within 24 hours.
