7/8 Social Studies

Mark Collison
8th Grade Social Studies

Hi!  My name is Mark Collison!  I am a proud Colorado native, and native of Arvada!  I grew up around the area of Arvada K-8 and it is my supreme honor to be able to teach in the community that helped raise me.  I earned my bachelors in Historical studies from the University of Colorado, Denver, and my Masters In the Arts of Teaching from Relay School for Education.  I have my teaching license in secondary education and I absolutely love it.  This is the beginning of my fourth year in education and my third year in middle, and also third year at Arvada K-8.

I love spending time being active as much as possible.  Whether this is sports or hiking I love keeping my body moving and heart pumping.  I rescued a puppy over the summer and she has taken a large part of my heart.   When not teaching you can find me on a hockey rink, or in a tent in the mountains with my puppy.

As I mentioned before it is my supreme honor to teach in the community that helped raise me.  I love teaching at K-8 specifically as I can actively change the reputation that has surrounded it since I was a young student.  This truly is a great school, with amazingly talented and educated staff.  We all know this year is going to be school in a different way, but I truly believe you could not find a group of more passionate and willing teachers, admin, and staff, dedicated to your students safety and learning!
