hours a week of math, reading, and writing
amount of fun!
Welcome to 4th Grade!
My name is Deanna Collins. I am entering my 33rd year at Monforton School! My passion for teaching and learning led me to achieve my National Board Certification in 2012. Over the years I have taught Health Enhancement, coached 5th-8th grade basketball for boys and girls, and drove the bus to games and practices at the Law & Justice Center before we had a gym. I taught the Gifted and Talented program, and for the past 15 years 4th grade.
Aside from teaching, I own and operate a cattle ranch with my husband and our two sons near Harrison. My commute each day gives me time to think about my day and view various wildlife. I enjoy spending my summers reading, fishing on our boat, and camping.
I will post upcoming fieldtrips and important unit information. Contact me with any questions or concerns.
