Daniel Collins

  • Welcome to Twin Lakes Elementary! I'm Mr. Collins, the principal of the school. I've been with the Elk River School District for 25 years. Previously, I was the principal at Parker Elementary for 10 years and of Otsego Elementary for four years. I have a Master's Degree in curriculum and instruction, a Master's Degree in Administration and a sixth year certificate in administration from St. Cloud State University.

    We do many fun things at Twin Lakes, some of which include Fall Festival Parade, Veterans Day Celebration, "I Love to Read" month festivities, Otterfest (school carnival), Arts Night, Spring Splash and many more. We are the "Home of the Otters"! Stop in sometime and watch our morning news with Ollie the Otter in action!

    Additionally, we have been named a Minnesota School of Excellence! This was only possible because of our great students, parents, staff, and community.
