    collins Katie Collins
    My name is Katie Collins and I have been an Instructional Coach at Big Creek since 2017. I attended the University of Georgia for my undergraduate degree (Go Dawgs!) and Georgia State University for my Masters in Teaching in Reading, Language and Literacy with endorsements in Special Education, Reading and ESOL. Before coming to Big Creek I worked in Fulton County as a K-5 ESOL teacher where I participated in many leadership opportunities. My passion for professional development, literacy instruction and technology integration helped me decide to pursue an instructional coach position. I currently live in Brookhaven and enjoy exploring the city of Atlanta, traveling, and spending time outdoors and at the lake. I am looking forward to another great year of working with the teachers and students here at Big Creek!
