Welcome to Room A5! My name is Rebecca Collins and I am so excited to be working with K-3 students in the Resource Room this year. I am looking forward to having a year filled with learning and fun where every student receives the tools needed to succeed!
My Education and Professional Background
I received my BA in Early Childhood and Childhood Education from Nyack College in New York. I went on to receive my MA in Elementary Special Education from Nyack College. While I was in New York I taught a younger toddler class at a preschool, was a substitute K-8 teacher, and taught one year as a math and science 7th and 8th grade teacher. I moved to Arizona in 2015 and taught at a charter school as the K-8th Resource Teacher. I have been working in the Chandler Unified School District since 2016 and I am so excited for another school year at Fulton.
My Educational Philosophy
I believe that every child is capable of learning when given the right tools and resources. My job is to praise and encourage the steps that lead to success in reading, writing, and math. I want to give students a firm foundation of knowledge so each student can continue to build on that knowledge. Students who believe in themselves are unstoppable! My goal is to support the unique way every student learns so each can achieve success.
