Hi Everyone!  My name is Vernon Paul Collins, Sr.  I am so honored to be apart of West Craven High School (Eagle Nation). I am thankful to serve as Lead Teacher within our awesome Exceptional Children's (EC) Program. Our students are always ready to learn and I am honored to help in that process. There is never a dull moment in my classroom. When I  started with Craven County Schools twelve years ago I started right here in "Eagle Nation". While with CCS I served in various roles including Assistant Baskeball Coach, School Bus Driver, Care Giver, Technology Specialist, Teacher Assistant and currently Lead EC Teacher. I graduated with honors from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Industrial Technology. I also graduated with honors from Grand Canyon University and obtain my Master's Degree in Special Education. I am married to the love of my life, my college sweetheart Malveata J. Collins with whom I am so blessed to work with. We have three amazing children. I am also an Ordained Minister and I believe that there is nothing to hard for God and teamwork makes the dream work. Let us "Keep on Flying!" Go Eagles!
