Mrs. Kris Cotton, Principal


Welcome to Cougar Country - Where cougars have heart!

Greetings Cougars!

My name is Kris Cotton, and I am looking forward to an exciting year at Colonies North Elementary.   My first day as principal of Colonies North was on November 16, 2011.  Prior to this day, I had served as the vice principal since July of 2006.  Colonies North is a fabulous elementary school with outstanding faculty and staff, supportive parents, wonderful students, and a strong sense of community.

I earned a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in math. My Master's degree is in Educational Leadership. I have been in education for 21 years. I have served as a fourth grade teacher, fifth grade teacher and a math specialist for grades K-5.   

I am originally from Minnesota, but have now lived in Texas for 21 years. I am married and have two children.  We love playing sports, riding bikes, and reading books.
