Ms. Jennifer Collins
I was born and raised in a small town, fondly known as Mayberry. Teaching has always been my passion which I proudly proclaimed at my preschool graduation. I never veered from this desire and was selected as a 2009 North Carolina Teaching Fellow. Meredith College became my home away from home where I completed my B.S. in Child Development and obtained an Elementary Education Teaching License. My experiences at Meredith and with Teaching Fellows helped me with my career preparation and ultimately led to me getting a job teaching 2nd grade at Oak Grove. This school took me in like family and honored me with the Beginning Teacher- Teacher of the Year. The 2017-2018 school year will mark my fifth year teaching at Oak Grove. I have truly enjoyed getting to know and work closely with an amazing group of children and their families. In my free time I enjoy playing with my golden doodle Haddie, reading lots of books, running, taking Pure Barre classes, and spending time with loved ones!
