Ms. Cotter's Class


Class overview

Welcome to first grade! We have a fun and exciting year ahead of us. I love working with small groups to meet everyone's specific levels of learning in all content areas.

We utilize a lot of hands-on learning as well as websites and applications that provide our staff with a plethora of data on how to challenge and assist each individual student.
