Erica Cottingham


My name is Erica Cottingham and I absolutely love teaching GATE at Challenger Elementary! I have been married to my husband for 17 years and together we have two amazing daughters! I enjoy traveling, yoga, reading, hanging out with our sweet pups, and relaxing with my family. It is my goal to push my students out of their comfort zone and accomplish things they never thought they could!
