Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Bev Collins
I graduated from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, with a major in art education, and I earned my master’s degree in curriculum and instruction through National Louis University, Chicago. I taught elementary art for five years in Downers Grove Schools as well as nine years in Troy School District. I have been teaching at Prairie Point since 2005. My home school is Prairie Point but I have also traveled to Grande Park, Southbury, Fox Chase, Hunt Club and Boulder Hill Elementary schools as needed.
Teaching elementary school visual art allows me to work alongside the children and experience the same lessons they enjoy. My favorite media is weaving and clay. I also enjoy crayons, paint, oil pastel and marker.
