    Meet Your Librarian

    Hello! My name is Kellie Cotton and I have been the Library Media Specialist at Pride Elementary since the 1995-1996 school year, which was my first year teaching! I earned a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Library Science at Murray State University and hold library/media certification in grades K-12.  I have completed the 5th year Master's level program at Murray State University as well. I am a member of two Kentucky Library associations,  KLA and KSMA.

    I have been married to my husband Mark since 1987. We have a cat named Simba and  a dog named Mya. My hobbies include  painting, quilting and reading! I love all things Disney, Star Wars and am a big Marvel fan too!

    My favorite books as a child were Pablo the Penguin Who Hated the Cold by Barbara Brenner and  A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L'Engle. In more recent children's literature, I loved reading the Harry Potter series, am a fan of Kate DiCamillo,  and get a big kick out of Mo Willems and his kooky Pigeon books.

    I strive to instill a love of reading in our students and to encourage them to read for pleasure as well as for information. Pride Elementary students are enthusiastic, intelligent, and loads of fun. I am thankful to be a part of the Pride family!
