Ms. Jennifer Simms-Ingraham

My name is Jennifer Simms-Ingraham, and I joined the Bolingbrook High School community in August 2004. Before coming to Valley View, I worked in the elementary school level since 1999 as a special education teacher. I chose a career in education because I wanted to impact the lives of students on a daily basis and be a positive light to our upcoming generation.

I am a strong believer in life-long learning and continual professional growth. After completing undergraduate schooling and earning a Bachelor of Arts in Special Education from Illinois State, I entered graduate program to earn a Master of Education in School Leadership from Concordia University.
