My name is Chris Collins. I have an A.A. Degree from Manatee Community College, Venice, FL, and a CDA Degree also from Manatee Community College. In addition to my degrees, I have taken continuing educational classes thru USF and Sarasota Technical School. I started at Epiphany Early Childhood in Feb. 1991 in the After School Program and became the Junior Kindergarten Assistant in Aug. 1991 to the present time.
I believe in a Catholic Education because it is rich in academics and rooted in faith. My parents gave me a Catholic education because they saw the importance of having religion in my life. The students that attended the Preschool are now college graduates and responsible adults. Several of Epiphany graduates have become doctors and lawyers.
I enjoy working with the children on the computer and see how they improve their skills, proficiency and independence.
My teaching philosophy: All children are miracles and they deserve the opportunity to show it.
My favorite quote:
“We are shaped and fashioned by what we love.” Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
My favorite Bible verse:
In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
