Collins Catholic School welcomes new principal

Corsicana — James L. Collins Catholic School welcomes a new and energetic principal in the form of Renee Ozier, who is busy at work this summer in preparation for the new school year and her new position.

Ozier comes from St. Monica’s Catholic School in Dallas, and Collins is her first position as principal. Ozier’s personal education began with St. Mary’s Catholic School in Sherman, completing high school at Hockaday, an all girl’s school in Dallas. She moved on to college beginning at Tufts University in Boston and finishing at North Western in Chicago. She has a triple degree in Communication/Speech with a concentration in Theater.

Ozier spent several years home-schooling her children before getting her education/teaching certification. With a desire toward progressing in her career, she obtained her Masters in Administration.

While being a stay-at-home mom and home-schooling her six children, she did marketing and fundraising for non-profits such as United Cerebral Palsy of North Texas.

Ozier brings an wealth of experience and skills to the table when planning for the future of James L. Collins Catholic School. Many plans are in motion, such as updating the infrastructure to support technology that will include iPads, laptops, ebooks, robotics  and more being high on the list.

Increasing enrollment is also a priority. Ozier is working with Bishop Dunne High School in Dallas on a plan that will allow graduates of Collins Catholic School to continue their Catholic education through high school.

Ozier additionally wants to include programming for students and teachers that will include: speech, occupational therapy, Handwriting Without Tears (a handwriting program), and Take Flight (a reading program), to name a few. Summer camps and programs will be offered not only to Collins Catholic students but open to the community. Teachers will be armed with many new tools to better serve their students, she said.
