Mrs. Nicki Collins
Second grade is such an exciting year for exploring, discovering and learning all about the world around you! I have been passionately teaching for 15 years and a proud Spartan from Michigan State University where I was awarded my B.A. and Masters in Education degrees. During the school day, I enjoy challenging all students to reach their personal best, making strong friendships and enhancing learning as a lifelong fun experience! At home, I have three wonderful and adventurous children, a talented husband and playful rescue dog, Sparky. I enjoy the outdoors, baking, all sports, and spending quality time with my family and friends!!
This year you will have the unique opportunity to have two wonderful teachers who are committed to making this a rewarding academic and social learning year! Our top priorities are working together to ensure each child reaches their full potential and instills a love of learning! Mrs. Collins will teach at the beginning of the week and Ms. Hoskow will teach at the end of the week. We communicate daily with each other to create a seamless transition between our days and we bring many years of research-based teachings tools and talents to our classroom! I am looking forward to another spectacular 2nd grade year at Doherty!!
