Hi! My Name is Manuela Cothren. I am the ARI Reading Specialist at Lakewood Elementary School. I have been teaching with the Huntsville City Schools system for 22 years. I have taught all grades from 1st through 4th. I moved to Huntsville in 1981 as an "Army brat," and have lived here ever since. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 3 amazing kids...one daughter and two sons. We also have 2 beautiful Cane Corsi named Pandora and Mojave. I love to spend time with my family, travel (especially to Disney!!), and cook. I love to read and am very excited to be a member of the Lakewood Family!!
