Welcome to Science!
Welcome to Mrs. Collins Science class! This is my fourth year teaching at Smarts Mill and my 12th year teaching. I am a Loudoun County native and a graduate of Broad Run High School. I am certified to teach preK-8th grade and have a concentration endorsement in math and science instruction. After graduating from Longwood College, I began teaching in Loudoun County and then moved to Tokyo, Japan, where I taught 5th-7th grades. After taking time off to be a stay-at-home mom to my 3 kids, I returned to the classroom in 2015.
I love exploring the world and making learning engaging through hands-on meaningful activities. When I'm not teaching, you can find me spending time with my family and various pets, reading and dreaming of traveling!
I am looking forward to a terrific school year!
