Welcome to Mrs. Cottie's Homepage
Hello! My name is Mrs. Lauren Cottie and I am a 3rd grade teacher here at Simkins Elementary. I have been teaching at Simkins since it's opening, and am currently in my 10th year of teaching. I have a love for learning and educating young minds, and have been blessed to find a fulfilling and rewarding career.
I graduated from high school in Raleigh, NC and continued my education at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Communications and went back for my degree in Elementary Education at UNC - Charlotte. In 2012, I obtained my Master's degree in teaching (grades K-6), and as of recently, I completed Elon's AIG (Academically and Intellectually Gifted) graduate program to receive an additional licensure to teach gifted students. Just as I am teaching the students I encounter, there is always more to learn and more to achieve!
Outside of the classroom I enjoy spending time with my 7-year old daughter and my husband, taking yoga and dance classes, doing gymnastics and going on trips (the beach is my favorite place to unwind).
There are no upcoming events to display.
