Monique Cottman
4th Grade Teacher
Longfellow Elementary School

"Ms. Cottman has consistently demonstrated the highest quality of teaching by motivating her students in a way that nurtures, challenges and supports them in their individual learning processes. She's funny, but tough. Honest and humble. She teaches students to respect the process of learning.

I am so thankful my son had Miss Cottman for his 4th grade teacher. This is a vulnerable age, especially for students who find frustrations and struggles in the classroom. I can honestly say my son is still engaged in the learning process and ready to keep pushing in school because of Monique. There is no higher calling for a teacher than to help students overcome their challenges, build confidence, and help them be prepared for the next steps in their educational journey."
