Mr. Joe Collins
I am a 23 year Air Force retiree who has worked in the Wills Point School District for 5 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.
My wife of 23 years, April Collins works as a one-on-one Nurse at the High school. We have 3 children in the district. KyAnn Collins is a Junior, a member of the National Junior Honors Society and a member of the Varsity basketball team. My Freshman daughter Kinley is also in NHS and plays various sports with the High School athletic program. My son Kole is in 7th 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.
