About Your Teacher
My name is Mrs. Coty and I have been a third grade teacher here at Peter G. Schmidt Elementary since 2016!
As a child growing up in Oklahoma, I realized pretty early on that I wanted to be a teacher. Teachers are awesome people and I like being awesome. It just made sense! I have been working with children both in and out of classrooms ever since.
Before becoming an educator here in Tumwater, I worked for the Centralia School District teaching 7th and 8th grade science. I really have a heart for this subject area and love watching students learning through science. Another favorite subject area for me is reading. You can learn so much once you can read and comprehend what you are reading. It does take skills, like the ones we work on in our classroom, but you can literally learn anything through reading.
I have an AA from Centralia College and a B.A. from Washington State University. Go COUGS!
My world outside of the classroom is made up of my two wonderful daughters who both attend Tumwater schools. As a family we enjoy swimming, reading, visiting family and traveling as much as we can. This last summer we went to Yellowstone National Park and it was lovely.
