• My name is Erin Collins and this is my 18th year to teach and my 3rd year at Ponder Elementary! This will be my 13th year teaching 1st grade.

    I grew up in a tiny town in southwest Kansas called Kismet. I graduated from Southwestern Heights High School and then went to West Texas A & M University in Canyon, TX. I have previously taught in Amarillo, Laredo, Decatur, and Jacksboro.

    My husband Mitchell and I have been married for 17 years and have two daughters. Our oldest, Sadie, is 12 years old and is in 7th grade!  Our youngest, Maggie, is 8 years old and in 2nd grade! I am looking forward to a fun and exciting year of learning!
