Ms. Jamica Simmons ( Ms. Jaye )

Hello there ! Welcome to Southwest High School!

I would first  like to take this opportunity to introduce myself . My name is Ms. Jamica Simmons, but I prefer to go by Ms. Jaye or Coach Jaye. I will be teaching Entrepreneurship 1 , Business Essentials and Sports and Entertainment Management.

This is my 3rd year as a partner in education at Southwest High school. I am a graduate of White Oak High School and I hold a MBA with a concentration in Health Care Administration from Strayer University and  currently receiving my teaching licensure from NC State University.  I am also the head JV and Varsity Lady Basketball Coach for White Oak High School. 

A little more background about myself is that I am truly BLESSED to be a mother of 2 amazing kids. My daughter is currently a senior this year  at Southwest High School and my son is a 5th grader. I find myself to be understanding but firm. I stand firm on doing unto others as you would want them to do unto you. As a  teacher and former basketball player, I believe in building foundations and teamwork to be successful in business. My hobbies are cooking , baking , shopping and being a sports mom. Last but not least, family time and church are strongly valued.

I am looking forward to a successful 2022-2023 school year.  All that I ask of our students is that they give a 110% and I will do my very best to help them be successful and be the best version of themselves.
