  • Meet the Teacher
    My name is Dianne Collins and I am the 8th grade English Language Arts teacher on the Hybrid 7th/8th grade team!
    This is my third year at Barker Middle School and I am so glad to be back!
    I have been married for 34 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 and lives in Louisiana!  I have two dogs, both Standard Poodles, Sophie and Katie!  I love to teach ELA, read, crochet, and hike.
