About Coach Collins

I am very excited to teach 7th grade this year. This is my second year here at Bear Branch. I taught in Spring ISD prior to coming to Magnolia ISD.  My husband Jarrett and I have 2 wonderful children, Kendall 17 and Hunter 14.


I have my certification in the following areas: 4-8th Generalist, 8-12 Language Arts Specialist and EC-12 ESL. 


Along with teaching, I am your wonderful Bear Branch Cheerleading coach!
