I became a resident of Enterprise when I was 5 years old so I definitely call this my home. I graduated from Enterprise High School in 2000 and from the University of Alabama in 2004. ROLL TIDE!!! Once I graduated from the University of Alabama I moved back to Enterprise to teach at Rucker Blvd. Elementary. At Rucker Blvd. I taught 2nd grade for four years. When EEEC opened in the Fall of 2009, I became media specialist and have been here ever since.
I am married to Adam Cotter, who is an Auburn graduate...you can imagine how interesting football season is at our house!! We have three children, Hagan (5) and Luke (3) and baby Kate (4 months). I am so thankful to be raising our children in the city where my husband and I grew up. We also live with our sweet dog, Ellie. In my free time I like to go to the lake, waterski, READ, shop, garden, and go to the beach.
I LOVE having all the kindergartners visit the library each week. I try to incorporate a good balance of both old and new things...storytime, book checkout, technology, STEM activities, centers, etc. The library is a fun place to be and I enjoy being a part of it!
