4K – Kindergarten

Hi! My name is Amy Cottrell. I have been married to my husband Michael for 25 years this coming August. We have two daughters, Emma who is 16 and Samantha who is 4. We are in the process of adopting Sam from Foster care and hope to have it finalized sometime this fall. I studied Early Childhood after high school, but ended up working in retail management, customer service and administration over the next 15 years. Since then, I have been homeschooling Emma as well as volunteering in different capacities in our church and community. I loved teaching the 4K & Kindergarten class for our first year and am excited to be able to continue this year instilling the love of learning while keeping Christ at the center of our school. Some quick fun facts about me include: I had a Kidney transplant in 2014, after being on dialysis for 5 ½ years. As a family, we enjoy playing disc golf, games and rock hunting together. One of my favorite places to visit is Pictured Rocks and Lake Superior.
