ALL ABOUT MS. COLLINS
I am super excited to incorporate my experience of 10 years teaching 4th and 3rd grade Language Arts/ Reading/ Writing, Math, and Social Studies into my first year to teach 2nd grade! I will be incorporating the classroom model of Guided Math along with other teaching models to present mathematical concepts. I will be implementing this model for my classroom structure. We can talk more about this at Parent Orientation, but I am super excited. I have fallen in love with teaching math. There is nothing more amazing then discovering each child's math brain. Children all learn in different ways and I truly enjoy teaching to fit their needs.
On a more personal note... I have a strong passion for teaching. This will be my 11th year to teach at Willow Creek and my 1st year to teach 2nd grade. My first two years of teaching experience were in 4th grade Language Arts. The other 8 were spent in 3rd grade. 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 from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas in August of 2008. My first year of teaching I was recognized as Elementary Rookie Teacher of the Year.
I am a proud mommy of two precious baby boys named Everett & Cooper. Everett is 8 & Cooper is 5. They are my treasures. Not only am I your child's teacher but I am also a fellow mommy. I cannot believe how fast they are growing! Everett will be a 3rd grader this year at WCES in Mrs. Geiser's class! Cooper is going into Kindergarten and will be joining us at WCES this year! It is a blessing to watch him and Everett develop a brotherly relationship! They never argue. LOL ;)
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.
Please look on-line to see your child's grades on a regular basis. If you happen to see a blank in the space, it means they have not turned in this assignment for a grade. I periodically alert students of missing assignments so the children are aware of what they need to accomplish during independent work time. If students choose to waste their work time, this can become an issue. We do offer study hall during recess time for any students that need to make-up work assignments. Ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to complete and turn in work. This responsibility skill will effect them in the future. I want all of the students to be successful! I will take work assignments late, but at times there maybe a point deduction.
