Mr. Joe Collins


I am a 23 year Air Force retiree who has worked in the Wills Point School District for 7 years both at the Junior High and High School levels. I graduated from Wayland Baptist University with a Bachelors degree in Criminal Justice, minoring in Management. I have 3 Associate degrees through the Community College of the Air Force in Fire Science, Police Sciences and Human Resources. I earned my teaching certification through the Troops to Teachers program in 2013 and am certified to teach Special Education, History and Physical Education. I currently work as an inclusion teacher providing one to one assistance to students in the general education environment. I am also the Assistant Varsity Girls Basketball Coach and throwing coach for girls track.

   My wife of 24 years, April Collins works as a one-on-one Nurse at the High school. We have 3 children. KyAnn Collins is Freshman at Texas A&M College Station. My Junior daughter Kinley is a member of NHS and plays Varsity Basketball and runs track for the High School athletic program. My son Kole is in 9th grade and enjoys Football, Basketball and of course Video games. After years of moving with the military we have settled in Wills Point and are very happy to call it home.

My passion is helping the kiddos and Basketball. I enjoy attending all the Wills Point sporting events and I coach several youth basketball teams throughout the year. My hometown is Savoy Texas.
