My name is Rebekah Collins and I will be teaching your 2nd grader this year.
This will be my 15th year to teach at Willow Creek and my fourth year to teach 2nd grade. My first two years of teaching experience were in 4th grade Language Art/ Social Studies. The other 8 years were spent teaching 3rd grade ELA/ SS and Math/ Science. Last year, I taught virtually for 9 weeks and then had the great pleasure of welcoming some of them back into the classroom! I absolutely love what I do! I started pursuing education at the age of 21 working as a paraprofessional at Nitsch Elementary in Klein ISD. After deciding to become a full time student at Sam Houston State, I started substitute teaching in Klein for the following two years. I graduated magma cum lade from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas in August of 2008. My first year of teaching at WCES, I was recognized as Elementary Rookie Teacher of the Year in the Tomball ISD School District.
I am a proud boy mom of two sweet young men named Everett & Cooper. Everett is 11 & Cooper is 8. They are my treasures. Not only am I your child's teacher but I am also a fellow parent of a 3rd grader here at Willow Creek. I cannot believe how fast they are growing! Everett will be a 6th grader at Northpointe Intermediate this year and Cooper is my 3rd grader here at WCES!
I hope your child is ready for an exciting school year! Please know that I treasure every day that you trust me with teach your precious child. I understand how hard it is to let go and put your trust in someone else! Trust me. I have your child's best interest at heart and hope that they have a great year. Remember, you are the expert on your child! We are going to be a team this year to ensure your child reaches their goals.
