  • My family and I am grateful to the new principal for the compationate, firm and consistent guidance she gives to our children. I am the first to admit that my children are no angels. But the way that our current principal disciplines the students with care and good intent is working. For the first time, my children are happy to go to school and they are doing better than ever before! I am in full support of her compassionate, yet firm leadership style that the students are responding to. She bringings a breath of fresh air to Collins. The disgruntled teacher who is slandering her ought to feel ashamed for blaming her for his inability to manage his class. It is that type of disrespectful, unprofessional conduct that will be the downfall of his career and the education of his students. I wish the new leadership success despite such insubordination.

  • I am absolutely appalled at the new principal's lack of professional behavior and expertise - the children I know who attend Collins say she never disciplines the students who are sent to her office and thinks hugs will cure the kids with deeper issues. Instead of learning through consequence, said students are coached by her to explain their behavior to their teachers with excuses like not knowing the material as a reason for bad behavior. Recently students were physically striking one another in her presence and she told the teacher to ignore them! Naturally my friend will be transferring her children as soon as possible.
