Collins' class is so far my favorite class because not only do I get my work done but we also have class discussions. Recently we talked about the 9/11 incidents. I learned about the sequence of events leading up to the crash into the pentagon. We talked about how if the plane had dropped its landing gear it would have hit the ground. Collins also makes sure we're up to date on current events by playing "CNN10."

Mrs. Collins, I love you so much. You have been my favorite teacher since day one. You also have known me since I was 13 years old and I'm about to be 16 now. I'm happy to have had you teach me lots of things and bring me up on my worst days too! You're more than just a teacher. When I look at you and speak, I see you as a good mother, wife, sister, friend and all of the above. You're amazing and I would say perfect but no one is perfect. You're so amazing to me and wonderful. Thank you for being a good person!

Mrs. Collins always has the answers for me when I needed help with my economics. I think she is a great teacher. She is always there when I am sad and need someone to talk to. She's my favorite teacher.


Collins has helped me through most of my struggles in learning in new and creative ways. She has helped me keep my grade up in U.S. History. I enjoy every second of every minute of every hour of class with her as my teacher. She is funny, sweet, and just as loyal as a teacher can get.


Collins teaches me true facts and things that are going on right now. Also she is funny and nice. She doesn't judge people and she treats everyone the same. She helps me with any question and doesn't get mad at me for what I say or how I say things. I like the way she teaches history because I can do it without getting mad or frustrated. She allows us to use our thoughts. I learn something new every day in her class. I haven't been here for long but she has impacted my life for the good.
