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.
