Daisy Simpson was born and reared in Port Arthur, TX and graduated from Lincoln High School in 1969. Mrs. Simpson entered into her college career at Texas Southern University, pledged Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, and then graduated in 1974 from Lamar University of Beaumont, TX in Elementary Education. Mrs. Simpson has since then received certification in Special Education as well as her Masters from Prairie View A&M University. Mrs. Simpson takes great pride in “education”. She is always taking additional courses to improve herself academically.
In 1989, Mrs. Simpson’s husband, Pastor Charles Simpson, began explaining the value of her gift to love and teach children. He insisted that they start their own school. He saw her quality of academia. They started a private school in 1990 with only eight Kindergarteners and fifteen Pre-Kindergarteners. By 1995, they were educating over 400 students. In 1998, they pursued a charter with a new board and was granted a charter that September. A new era with a new name, Two Dimensions Preparatory Academy Charter School had emerged.
Two Dimensions has become a beacon in the community. Thousands of students have touched the life of Mrs. Simpson and she expects thousands more will do the same before she retires, if she does.
Mrs. Simpson believes that we must be taught. We have to learn all that we know. The irreducible price of learning is realizing that you do not know. One may go further and point out, as any scientist or artist will tell you that the more you learn the less you know but that means that you have begun to accept, and are even able to rejoice in the relentless conundrum of your life. She has learned that there is always more in life to learn.
