About Mrs. Cottingham


Hello! 
Excited to start this year with you all! This is my first year at Del Oro High School. I am a California State University Northridge Alumni, where I majored in Deaf Studies with concentrations in Deaf Education and ASL/English Interpreting.  Prior to coming to DO, I had been working with elementary aged Deaf and Hard of Hearing students.  I also work as a Sign Language Interpreter for Video Relay Service.  My husband and I are new proud parents to our baby girl, Cameron (8 months).  We love to be outdoors, lift weights, and spend time with family. 
Look forward to getting to know all of you!
