Hello, I'm

Sherri Simmons

"I learned who I was underneath the hats that I wore..."

Sherri Simmons is a wife and a mother to her beagle named K.B.  She is the oldest of four
children (two sisters and one brother) and the aunt to three nephews. She has been
an educator in the Chicago Public Schools for 13 years, where she has taught 3rd,
1st, Intermediate Math, served as an Assistant Principal, and is currently working as a STEM Integration Specialist. 


She is also the Founder and President of Young Ladies At All Times, NFP (Y.L.A.A.T.), a mentoring program for young girls.  Sherri
began writing Underneath the Hat in 2013 after the separation from her first


Writing the book served as therapy for her to get through the seperation and the trials that stemmed from her relationship.

Sherri's hope is that others will be helped and set free as they learn through the sharing of her journey of self-rediscovery by revealing what's underneath the hat..
