Hi! My name is Bonita Cothren and this is my first year at Ridgecrest Elementary. I teach 5th grade and help with the Math Club. I have taught the last fourteen years in the Kinesiology department at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. I am very excited about the transition from UAH to Ridgecrest. I am married and have four children. My oldest son graduated from the University of Alabama with a degree in finance and lives in Atlanta. My oldest daughter earned her doctorate in pharmacy from Harding University and works at the Mobile Infirmary. My youngest daughter also graduated from Harding with a B.S.N. and works at the Baptist Hospital in Little Rock. My youngest son is a junior at the University of Alabama, also majoring in finance. In my spare time, I enjoy playing tennis, reading and traveling.
