4th

I'm so excited to be teaching here at Foothill Knolls this year! I have always called the Inland Empire my home. I graduated from California Polytechnic University, Pomona in 2015 with a degree in Liberal Studies. I completed my teaching credential in 2017, and began my masters in education program immediately after.

My favorite subjects are science and math, and I love to be outdoors. My favorite place to be is Yosemite Valley. Someday, I want to be a Park Ranger.

Hello Families! 

My name is Mr. Simmons and I've been teaching at Foothill Knolls since 2018. I enjoy building relationships with my students and being part of our school community.

I received my bachelors and teaching credential from Cal Poly Pomona.

My favorite subjects to teach are ELA and Science. In my free time, I love anything to do with sound, technology and being outside.

Hi. I'm Chris Filer.  I am so happy to have your student in my class.  This year I am teaching 4th.  I also have experience in Kinder, first, second, third, and fifth grade.  This is my 26th year of teaching.  I have been here at FK for 14 of those years.  I graduated from University of La Verne, and have a Masters in Education from Claremont Graduate University. I have three boys of my own and enjoy gardening, puzzles, music, and art.  I know we are going to have a wonderful year!  I could not do my job without your help and support.  Thanks you for being such amazing parents.  Together, we will make this an awesome and successful school year!
