NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A trend at Seventh Street Elementary School in the North Little Rock School District can make you see double.
If you are visiting school, you might think your eyes are playing tricks on you.
“The teachers’ reaction is: Did I just see you? Said Principal Marques Collins. “No, I just saw you!”
Because there are not one, not two, but nine pairs of twins at school this year.
This is something Collins has never seen before in his 13 years as an educator.
“I probably had a pair of twins, maybe two, but having nine pairs is unique,” Collins said.
It’s his first year on Seventh Street and his secretary has made him aware of the lookalikes.
“And then like two weeks later she said it again, she’s like, we’ve got another pair of twins coming in and I’m like, wait!” Collins said. “How many pairs of twins do we have? “
Adrienne Durham, staff member, helps Collins with the pair pack.
“The students are able to see that even though we are adults, we can still have a good relationship,” Adrienne said.
And his twin sister, Aundrea.
“Looks like we’re trying to get away from each other, but we always end up in the same place so here we are!” Said Aundrea.
As the duos keep Collins on their toes, he and his wife Bresha have some good news.
They’re expecting… twins.
“And they were like, well, we found two heartbeats and I was like what?” Said Bresha. “You know, I’m saying maybe it’s in the air. “
For Principal Collins, twins at work, and soon twins at home, only double his joy.
Principal Collins and his wife are expecting identical twins next March.
