Ms. Simon has been teaching at CCSF since 1975.

She believes in a student-centered classroom where all students feel empowered to speak and debate with each other and the instructor. Her goal is for students to establish life-long learning habits along with critical thinking skills to enrich their personal lives and to enable them to contribute to their communities.

Ms. Simon coordinates Project SURVIVE, the CCSF sexual violence prevention program, and serves on the Discrimination and Harassment Prevention Committee. She also served as the Women's Studies Department chair for nine years (2001-2010).
