Meet Mrs. VanCott
Hi! Welcome to our Safari! My name is Mrs. VanCott, and this will be my seventh year teaching at Great Valley School district. I'm originally from Albany, NY, and that's where my parents and grandparents still live! I attended VFCC where I majored in elementary education. In May '08, I completed my Masters from Cabrini University with an emphasis on early literacy. Since I've moved to Pennsylvania, I've taught six years in Kindergarten, and this will be my fourth year in first grade! I am thrilled at the opportunity to have you in my classroom and look forward to watching another class grow and learn becoming incredible readers, writers, thinkers, and explorers!
I have been married to my husband (Andrew) for the past seven years! We were married in New York a few years after college and have been enjoying our adventures ever since! About a year and a half ago we were thrilled to welcome our daughter into this world. She is absolutely amazing and we love her to pieces. She is a very happy person and loves to run and play at the playground or go swimming in the pool. We also have a furry friend in our family. We have a six year old black lab named Bella. She is a piece of work! You will hear lots of funny stories about her this year and all the trouble that she gets into!
