Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. Collins

Welcome everyone, I hope you had a wonderful and restful summer and are ready for 2020/2021!

A little bit about me:

I am extremely excited to be entering my 5th year at the Deer Valley Unified School District and my second at Deer Valley Middle School.  I grew up in AZ and went to several schools in the Peoria School District.  I have two boys ages 19 and 17, and a 13-year-old daughter. 


I have an Associates Degree from Glendale Community College, undergraduate degree from Arizona State University in Secondary education (6-12 Social Studies) and a Master’s Degree in Athletic Administration and Coaching from Concordia University Irvine.  I am in my second year of my Doctorate and am having a blast being back in school! This will be my 13th year teaching and I am extremely excited to help Principal Backus fullfill his vision of DVMS.

My Interests and Hobbies:

I have coached MS and HS sports in the valley for well over 12 years.  I love watching ASU football, Arizona Christian University football, OUAZ football and Arizona Cardinals football. The Sun's look promising this year as well and I am excited to see how they play!  


I am excited meet all of you this year!
