I am so excited that you are here. My name is Kylie Collins and I'll be your child's fourth grade teacher this year. I am originally from Connecticut, but I moved to Colorado in 2010. I studied Environmental Science and Music at Bard College and then received my Masters in Education from Western. I taught first grade in Aspen for four years before moving to Crested Butte in 2016. I worked with the reading intervention and special education teams for two years here and now I am thrilled to be embarking on my third year in fourth grade. I live with my husband Matt and two dogs. In my free time I enjoy trail running, skiing, and everything outside.
My name is Katie Jo Tilton and I will be student teaching with Ms. Kylie this year while attending Western Colorado University’s Elementary Education Teacher Residency Program. I discovered my passion for education while working at CBCS as a Special Education Assistant and am excited to be back to school in my new role as a student teacher. I have lived in the Gunnison Valley for the past 4 years, and in my free time I love to bike, ski, hike, and get outside to enjoy the beautiful place we call home.
