About the Media Center

  • Mrs. Foster

    Mrs.Foster is the media specialist at Collins Elementary.  She has been an educator for 19 years, and a media specialist for eight years (all at Collins).  

    What Happens in the Media Center?

    Our media center is a fun, busy place!  On any given day, there are students checking out books they love, students creating in the MakerSpace, classes doing iReady in the computer lab, and Mrs. Foster teaching classes computer skills and research lessons.  


    Mrs. Foster counts on the help of regular volunteers to help the media center run smoothly and allow her time to teach lessons and complete "behind the scenes" work.  Volunteers check in books, check books out to students, and shelve books.  If you are interested in helping in the media center on a weekly basis, please contact Mrs. Foster at heather.foster@hcps.net.
