Welcome to my website!  I am extremely excited to be part of Bartlett City Schools and the Appling Middle School Family!
About Me:
I am blessed to be married to Lindsey Dawkins Collins and we have three wonderful daughters in Tatelyn (age 7), Bradleigh (age 5), and Carlee Jane (age 3).  So you might say we have quite the busy home!
I am a "Life-Long Memphian" and grew up in the Bartlett area. I attended The University of Memphis where I earned a Bachelor of Business and Administration degree from Fogelman College of Business (1994) and a Master of Science Degree in Counseling and Personnel Services from the College of Education, Health, and Consumer Sciences (2004).  I also attended Trevecca Nazarene University where I studied Educational Leadership and acquired my endorsement in Educational Administration & Supervision (2011).
