Mrs. Shawna Collins, NBCT

Welcome to Kindergarten! I am so happy to be your child's teacher! This is my 14th year teaching in the Deer Valley district and 6th year at Legend Springs. I have taught Kindergarten for 11 years, 1st grade and 1st grade/Kindergarten combined. The motivation of these little learners inspires me daily and I love celebrating their successes throughout the school year and beyond.  

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and endorsements in Early Childhood Education and ESL. I became a National Board Certified Teacher in 2020. I hold a Structured English Immersion endorsement and am currently working on my Gifted Education endorsement.  

I'm looking forward to working with you and your child as we create wonderful Kindergarten memories this year!
