Meet the Teacher
My name is Dianne Collins and I am the 8th grade English Language Arts teacher on the 8th Grade Team!
This is my fourth year at Barker Middle School and I am so glad to be back!
I have been married for 35 years to my husband, Pete, who teaches orchestra for the LaPorte Community School Corporation.
I have two sons. Joel is my oldest, he's an EMT and married, lives in Chesterton, IN, and has a son named Elijah! My first grandchild! My youngest, Andy, is a Physical Therapy Assistant, he is also married, and lives in Kenner, Louisiana! I have two dogs, both Standard Poodles, Sophie and Katie! I love to teach ELA, read, crochet, and hike.
