Dear Parents/Guardians, 
      Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year! My name is Ms. Collier and I am going to be the fourth grade resource and in-classroom support teacher. This will be my second year teaching at the Eleanor Van Gelder School and I am extremely excited! Before coming to the Edgewater School District, I taught first, second, third, and fourth grade classrooms in towns at the "Shore." I have a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education from the University of Maryland. I also have obtained my Masters of Special Education from Monmouth University. 

       After only the first few times visiting Edgewater, I knew it was a wonderful community! Everyone has been so welcoming and friendly. I know this is going to be a wonderful school year. I believe in working as a team with students and families to ensure the best possible education. Let's have a wonderful year working together to ensure the success of the students! 

       Communication with parents and families is extremely important to me as an educator. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, please feel comfortable reaching out to me. I strongly believe in having an open line of communication, therefore, I will always respond at the earliest convenience. I am thrilled for the 2017-2018 school year at EVG! This year will be filled with wonderful, enriching learning experiences. 

    Thank you for visiting my page!
