Ms. Traci Cottrell
Hello. : )
I am so excited to be starting my first full year at Stuard Elementary as a third grade teacher. I have been teaching in Aledo ISD for about twenty years, but I am new to Stuard. As a child, I was an Aledo Bearcat from Kindergarten through my Senior year, so I have a TON of school spirit. I played sports during school and some in college, and I loved the way it felt to be a part of a team. It taught me a lot.
I look forward to instiling that same school pride in our classroom. Our theme for the year is TEAMWORK, because I think that working together and supporting one another is more important than ever.
A few things about me...I have two children--a son who just graduated from college and a daughter at Aledo High School. I also have two cats and a brand-new puppy (as of this summer) that is the light of our life! My hobbies include gardening, fitness, and spending time with friends.
Teaching has always been my passion. I have taught just about every grade level as a home bound teacher for Aledo ISD, but my true calling is with elementary-aged students. Something I have NOT done much of is teach during a pandemic situation, so I know this will require some grace and flexibility on all of our parts as we navigate the uncertanties together.
If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me.
My conference time is from 12:00 - 12:55 daily. Please email me to schedule a conference time
