Greetings Laneville ISD Family!
My name is Keith Collins and I am the Principal with Laneville ISD. First, and foremost, it is an honor and privilege to join the Laneville ISD family! Laneville is a great school with a glorious past and an exciting future that I am truly grateful to be joining. I look forward to cultivating positive relationships and working collaboratively with each of you in order to make our students the best they can be! In an effort to begin building a positive rapport with each of you, I want to provide you with some background information about me. I have been married for 23 years to my wife, Rebecca. We have one son, Brenden (19), who attends TSTC in Marshall. We have resided in Henderson, Texas for the past 8.5 years and are absolutely happy to call East Texas home. I am a Southeast Texas native having grown up and graduated from Silsbee, Texas. Professionally, I am an intrinsically motivated and enthusiastic individual. I recently completed my 22nd year of public education experience in the state of Texas. During my career, I have been a Principal, Assistant Principal, Restorative Discipline Coordinator, RtI Behavioral Coordinator, Team Leader, Public School Ambassador, Head Baseball Coach, Defensive Coordinator, and Curriculum Writing Team Member. I have taught various levels of science, ranging from Intermediate science to AP Biology. My career has given me experience in multiple environments. I have been in small schools with an enrollment of about 100 Kindergarten through 12th grade students. I have also been in large schools that have had enrollments of over 4000 students just at the campus I was teaching. Teaching is still my priority and I utilize every opportunity to remain active in the classrooms with teachers and students. I truly look forward to getting to know each of you and planting roots with Laneville. Laneville ISD is a well-respected school that has a proud tradition of academic and athletic excellence. Using this tradition with our collaborative effort, we will provide a climate that is conducive to enriched academic opportunities infused with 21st Century educational techniques culminating in a first-class educational experience for our students. I look forward to serving with each of you. The future is bright at Laneville ISD and I am proud to be part of the Yellowjacket Family!
