Rescue dog, excitement barking

Indigo is kind of a tough nut.
She's an adorable lovable little girl, who is timid about some things.
She will have her dominate times, but generall she's a bit timid.

We've had her since the end of May, just about a month ago ,she first started barking, we figure good she's feeling comfortable.
She only barks, like when we get home, or if someone has a toy she wants.

We train with e collars, and we train echo how to behave comming through the door etc.

it's almost like we don't want to curb her enthusiasm because I don't want to deflate her confidence.
Should I just let this go on until she starts showing confidence more often, in other ways?
or should I start teaching her proper greetings etc now?
