Principal Milton Collins on creating powerful human connections at Lincoln Elementary

Utah’s First Lady, Abby Cox, is joined by Milton Collins (Principal – Lincoln Elementary School) to talk about Milton’s upbringing in Charleston, Mississippi, getting recruited to play college basketball at Rust College, and some life-changing lessons that he learned from his late mother throughout the years.

Milton also shares the story of earning his first job in education as a third-grade teacher in Illinois, finding his passion for teaching, and the meeting that got him recruited to become a principal in Utah.

Then we talk about various ways that we can help support our teachers in Utah, how Milton is developing powerful relationships with the students at Lincoln Elementary, and why it’s imperative that we create an environment where all of our students can feel represented and connected to each other.
