Mr. Collins' Classes

Who is Mr. Collins?

Dear Parents and Students,

I am very happy to be your teacher this school year! I am a native of Hampton, but have experienced much of the world through fortunate travel experiences. I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Master's Degree in Teaching from Christopher Newport University. I have been at Warwick High School for 4 years now and love the atmosphere at this school.

My teaching philosophy follows the idea that all people have potential and they will fulfill that potential when pushed and when we believe in them. I hold all my students to a high standard and expect my students to take an active role in their learning. I am fair across the board and always provide a reasoning for grades and comments. I also believe that learning is not a one-way street. It requires a dialogue, especially in social studies, where we will discuss controversial topics with respect to each other and diversity.

I look forward to this coming school year and please do not hesitate to contact me either by email ( or by phone (757-591-4700 ext. 58307).
