Early Childhood Center (ECC) Teacher of the Year
Harris -- I have been teaching in Collinsville under the administration
of Janice Pollard for 11 years. I was inspired, by my mother, to become a teacher,
and I have been blessed to teach Pre-K, special education, and now Kindergarten
... as well as work with the best staff members. Each day, I am guaranteed smiles,
hugs, and lots of laughter, and I can't imagine doing anything else! |
I have been married to my wonderful husband, Greg, for 10 years and have 2 beautiful boys, Corbin and Colt.
Wilson Elementary Teacher of the Year
Craig -- I am truly honored to be recognized in my building by such
amazing teachers. I have really enjoyed my time here in Collinsville. My Colleagues
are wonderful and talented people who encourage each other daily. My administration
is supportive and caring and the parents here in Collinsville are awesome. I am
blessed to be able to help educate and mold their children. My students love learning,
enjoy school and even when I have less than an 'optimal' day in the classroom,
are quick to forgive, forget and start again the next day. What more could a teacher
Beverly will have been married to husband Dave 25 years this August and they have one child, Shelby, a CHS freshman. Beverly is in her 23rd year of teaching: 5 years in Yale, OK (4th grade, music and G/T); 11 years in Tulsa (3-5 science / social studies, and 1st/2nd looping) and 7th year here in Collinsville teaching 2nd, 1st, and T-1/1st looping.
Herald Elementary Teacher of the Year
Cherry -- I grew up in Tulsa and graduated from East Central High
School. I graduated from Northeastern State University in 1985 with a Bachelor
of Science in Elementary Education, and a minor in Early Childhood. I am beginning
my 23rd year in teaching, I have previously taught in Tulsa and Owasso Public
Schools Systems. This is my third year to teach in Collinsville. I have taught
second, fourth and am now teaching fifth grade. I have a wonderful family that
consists of my husband, two daughters 18 and 21, and three stepdaughters 19, 21
In my career I have crossed paths with hundreds of children, who I hope I have influenced in a positive way. One of my favorite quotes is by Henry Brooke Adams: "A teacher affects eternity: He can never tell where his influence stops."
Middle School Teacher of the Year
Prickett -- I am completing my 34th year of teaching with the last
31 years here at Collinsville. My husband, also a teacher, has been here all 34
years. We graduated from High School in Owasso, OK in 1972. We graduated from
college in 1976 from Oklahoma State University.|
I have taught Middle School, first grade, and third grade.
I enjoy teaching reading at the sixth grade level. We have two sons who also attended Collinsville Public Schools. Our oldest, Aaron, now teaches High School Biology in Owasso and our youngest, Adam, is a lineman for VVEC. They both are married and live in Collinsville. We have one grandson, Will, who will be attending Collinsville Schools in another year or two. We have been very happy here in Collinsville and we are happy our family is close by.
I love the technology entering our classrooms and see it as a termendous resource for teaching.

Rogers -- Rhonda graduated in 1982 from Hominy High School. She graduated
in 1987 from Northeastern State University with her Bachelor's in Science (Zoology
