Hello FEARLESS FAMILY!!
My name is Amber Cottingham and I am extremely excited and honored to have the opportunity to serve as an Assistant Principal at Vivian Field Middle School. A little about me, I grew up in a small town called Merkel, just outside of Abilene. I played softball for Angelo State University where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in 2009. (Side note: I was a member of the 2007 DII World Series Softball Team…. GO RAMS!) In 2015 I graduated from Abilene Christian University with my Masters degree in Leadership.
I began teaching in 2010 at Hawley ISD where I was a middle school math/science teacher, middle school volleyball/basketball coach, and the high school head softball coach. I came to CFBISD in 2017 to follow my husband's dreams of working in aviation. Creekview High School was my first stop in CFB, where I taught Math, was the 504 coordinator, assisted with admin duties, coached volleyball, and was the head softball coach.
My husband Cody is an airplane mechanic and pilot at In The Pattern in Denton. We were married in 2013 and have enjoyed every day since! We have 3 amazing fur babies all named after baseball/softball. Easton is an 8 year old black lab, Wrigley is a 7 year old silver lab, and Mookie is a silver lab baby girl at 1 year old. Cody and I love sports: baseball/softball, football, and never miss NASCAR when they come to Texas Motor Speedway!
I am looking forward to an amazing year at VFMS, and ready to learn and grow with you all! If you need anything please do not hesitate to reach out to me: email@example.com
