Mrs. Katie Collins
Hello! Welcome to our class website! My name is Katie Collins and I am going to be your first grade teacher. This will be my third year teaching at Odell Primary and my seventh year teaching in a public school. I love first grade, and all the exploring, learning, and fun we get to have.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a concentration in English from East Carolina University. I have a passion for teaching and for kids. I love seeing each student grow and learn throughout the year. I strive to make a positive impact in the lives of my students to help them become their best selves and to grow towards becoming a good citizen and “world changer” themselves.
I am originally from North Carolina, as I grew up in Montgomery County, but I moved around some when my husband was in the army. A few years ago, I moved back to North Carolina with my family. My husband and I have two kids. My son, Adrian, will be in fifth grade and my daughter, Karalynn, will be in third grade. We aslo have a chocolate lab. His name is Chewbacca or Chewy for short. Outside of the classroom, I love playing games, riding bikes, reading, and watching movies with my family.
I can’t wait to spend the next year learning and growing with you. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email or Dojo message me.
