Hello! My name is Kate Collins, and I’d like to welcome you to my blog. I am a National Board Certified Teacher in English as a New Language. Currently I teach Arts & Humanities with Anne Arundel County Public Schools and am certified by the state of Maryland in ESOL, English, special education, and theater. I also have a Montessori background and use this method to help nurture the spiritual life of young children. Life-long learner and professional student are good descriptions of who I am. With a background that includes Education, Theater, and Theology, you mighy say that I’m eclectic! I love watching movies, reading, acting, drawing, singing, and traveling. I love arts integration as an approach to teaching because I think it’s one of the best ways to learn. Arts Integration is keeping me from drowning in a sea of assessments.
I am very grateful to AACPS for providing me with the opportunity to learn how to use the Arts Integration approach in the classroom, and I hope more administrators and teachers will join the AI band wagon. Please read my Personal Statement on Arts Integration. (click here) Kate Collins
