My name is Brittany Cothron and I currently teach 3rd grade Language Arts and Social Studies. I will be switching to Math and Science for the 2018-19 school year. Prior to coming to Eagle Ridge I had a wide variety of experiences. After graduation from WIU I became a substitute teacher all over the Quad Cities, including here at Eagle Ridge. From there I became a reading specialist for a year, then I taught 2nd grade for two years.
I knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was in elementary school myself. I love teaching because I get to build bonds with many awesome kids each year. I love being able to help them gain knowledge and skills that will help them throughout their lives. Seeing them smile and enjoy learning is my goal each day.
In my leisure time I like to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy going to the local farmer's market in Davenport each Saturday during the summer. I also love spending time outside when the weather is nice. When the weather is not great I enjoy reading, watching TV, and simply spending quality time with the awesome people in my life.
When I was growing up my favorite book series was Captain Underpants. I enjoyed the obnoxious humor and silly characters. I will still pick up these books sometimes for a good laugh.
