Degrees and Certifications:
My name is Kristen Collins and this is my second year teaching at Berlin Memorial School. Prior to that, I worked at Fowler School in Maynard teaching grade 4 and grade 5, and Green Meadow School while completing my Masters in Elementary Education at Lesley University. I absolutely love teaching children and my greatest satisfaction is seeing students succeed and develop a love of learning!
My goal is to provide my students with the skills they need to empower themselves academically, socially, and emotionally. My hope is to motivate them to discover new things, to be excited about learning, to persevere when things are difficult and to always try their very best.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two children (my son Freddy is in 7th grade and my daughter Caroline is in 5th grade) and our fur baby Marley, a 5 year old Golden Retriever. I also enjoy reading, cooking, gardening and cheering on the Red Sox!
