digital citizenshipDustin Simmons is Dean of Students at Karl G. Maeser Preparatory Academy, where he teaches ancient history, literature, and Latin. He also coaches soccer. He has a MA in Comparative Studies emphasizing the Classics (basically anything and everything having to do with the ancient Greeks and Romans).

He spends most days with his nose in old books, convincing teenagers to read great books, or helping students realize why history and literature are still relevant in today’s social media-dominated world. Thinking deeply about powerful principles with young people keeps him motivated and young-at-heart.
