Mrs. McCollam

My name is Karina McCollam and I am so excited to be a fifth grade teacher here at Dutch Fork Elementary! I look forward to sharing my love for learning with my students and helping prepare them to move on to their next adventures in middle school academically, socially and emotionally.

When I am not at school, I enjoy spending time with my husband, daughter and dog Ziggy. We enjoy walking trails, traveling and just spending time together. I am also a Girl Scout leader and enjoy working with the girls on a variety of badges and experiences. I like to read and spend time outside. My favorite vacation destination is the beach. Family means everything to me. I hope to create a family in our classroom.
