Coach Collins' class
About Coach Collins

I am very excited to teach 7th grade again this year. This is my fourth 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 19 and Hunter 16. My son attends Tomball High School and my daughter is currently a Mississippi State Bulldog! 


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 Head Cheerleading coach!


7th grade ELA expectations:

This year in 7th grade we are highly focused on perfecting reading and writing skills. Your student will be expected to read and/or write in class on a daily basis.

This class will also help your student get the necessary skills they will need to be successful in the future and on the STAAR test.
