“I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone and give you a heart of flesh.” Ezek. 36:26
A native of Barrington, IL, Mrs. Cottingham has enjoyed watching students grow over the years and realized all the potential they have in life. She came to PND because she is able to integrate her love for the Catholic faith with her love for education. Outside of school, Mrs. Cottingham spends most of my time with her family. Together they enjoy reading, cooking, baking, and being outside. She is also on the executive board for Biking for Babies, in which she spends a lot of time working with that organization. A fun fact about Mrs. Cottingham is she attempted to grow corn in her backyard, it grew except the birds ate it before she was able to pick it.
