Meet Mrs. Cote
Welcome, I am Mrs. Cote. I am a first year teacher here at Center Drive School. I am teaching all 5th grade Social Studies as well as one 5th grade Science and one 6th grade science.
I am newly married and have children from a previous marriage, Brendan (11) and Isaac (10) who are my pride and joy! I also have a little dog named Rogue who is 2 years old. We live in Old Town and enjoy most things outdoors including our newest hobby, kayaking, and biking and hiking in the UMO trails right down the street from where we live. We also love to go camping in the summer and recently upgraded from a tent to a small pop-up which we are loving!
I graduated from the University of Maine, Orono in December 2016 as a nontraditional student. I earned Suma Cum Laude standing and was inducted into Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society for Education. I am certified to teach K-8 and have a concentration in Child Development and Family Relations.
I look forward to my first year here at Center Drive School. I have already enjoyed meeting and connecting with students and their families and hope to continue in forging great relationships within this great community!
My Educational Philosophy
All children are capable of learning and will excel when they have the right tools, instruction, and encouragement.
They deserve a diverse classroom where everyone is accepted and respected and the environment is safe and free from prejudices.
My classroom will serve as a community where all children are welcome to be who they are and learn to work together using their strengths as individuals and as a team.
Though I am the guide in the classroom, parents/guardians are a vital part of the team to lead children towards success and deserve to be informed and collaborated with.
