Mrs. Collins has been a wonderful teacher for my son! She has shown him compassion acceptance and grace at a time when my son truly needed it. 18 months ago my wife who had been homeschooling him experienced a medical catastrophe and after 5 months in the hospital her resulting condition leaves her severely disabled (unable to talk walk eat etc.). My son's world has been flipped upside-down. Instead of spending all day every day with her he now spends most of the day away from her at school. Mrs. Collins understands all this and makes sure that my son feels loved ( as much as a teacher can). The transition to public school has not been smooth. My son has had behavior issues but Mrs. Collins has refused to give up on him. I was fortunate enough to go on a field trip a few weeks ago. During the trip I witnessed firsthand how caring graceful and amazing Mrs. Collins truly was. She wasn't afraid to take on the role of parent disciplinarian friend teacher counselor etc. for my son and the rest of his classmates. Mrs. Collins absolutely embodies the I.R.I.S.H. qualities outlined in this program. She is more than deserving of this honor because she puts KIDS FIRST plain and simple.
