Message From The Principal

Greetings Collins Families! 

I am extremely excited to join the Collins community!  Please allow me to share a little about myself.  I have been the assistant principal at Harvard Elementary for the past four years.  I also taught at Harvard and at a local cooperative preschool.  I am a proud product of the Parkland area and a graduate of Washington High School and the University of Washington.  

As a Collins staff, we look forward to partnering with you to support your students on their educational journey. Our mission is to create connected, capable, contributing learners who achieve their highest potential every day.  Our staff is committed to providing a welcoming, positive learning environment and rigorous, meaningful learning opportunities.   

At Collins, we celebrate our community’s diversity.  By acknowledging and valuing each learner, we increase the capacity for all learners to achieve our mission.   

This school year, we look forward to celebrating with you the social and academic learning your student exhibits.  This may be a phone call home, during a school assembly, or at a family event.   

Part of our commitment to partnering with you is being available when you have questions, need resources, or want to share ideas.  We also want to encourage you to join our PTA and/or volunteer in our school.  Please feel free to reach out to our office staff to get connected to the person who can offer the assistance you need.
