Mrs. Nicole Collins

Welcome to third grade! I am so excited for this upcoming school year at HEART Academy! I have been teaching 3rd grade at Julian Newman since 2007 and can't imaging doing anything different or being anywhere else! I graduated from Athens State University with degree in elementary education in 2006. I also have my masters degree from University of West Alabama in school counseling. I am currently working toward National Board Certification for Teachers.

I am married to Nick Collins and we have two daughters, Allison and Lindsay, both students in the Athens City School system. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, as well as spending time on the water and crafting.
