Welcome to 6th Grade Science!
Welcome to Mrs. Collins Science class! This is my third year teaching at Smarts Mill and my 12th year teaching. I am a Loudoun County native and 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 4th-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 activities. When I'm not teaching, you can find me spending time with my family and dogs, going on adventures and dreaming of traveling!
I am looking forward to a terrific 2021-2022 school year!
