I'm so happy you are here! My name is Mrs. Collins and I will be your teacher for 8th grade Math.
I'm new to the The Bend so I am sure you are curious about me. I am originally from Los Angeles, CA, but have been in Texas for 11 years now. I have two degrees: Bachelors in Science: Criminal Justice (from THE Texas Southern University) and a Masters in Education: Educational Leadership (from Lamar University). I'm vegan, and trust, I eat the same things you do, just using different ingredients. In other words, more than grass, AKA lettuce!
I love sports! I have both played and coached basketball, tennis, football, and track&field. I have also danced and sponsored dance. I believe a healthy body leads to a healthy mind so staying in shape is a must.
I am very excited to meet you all. I'm sure you are beyond ready to return to campus and I am beyond ready to teach you. If you are reading this, you have been given the best teacher in the world and you were specifically chosen to be in my class. We will work hard, learn new things, and have an amazing time in the process.
If you have any questions and/or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm here to meet your needs and make this math journey as simple as possible.
