    My name is Cindy Montgomery and I am honored to serve as the principal at Cottondale Elementary School.  I hold a Master's degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from the University of Alabama, as well as Educational Administrator certification from the University of Alabama.  I began my teaching career with the Tuscaloosa County School System in 1996, where I taught kindergarten at Maxwell Elementary School.  In 2005, I was appointed Assistant Principal at Taylorville Primary School and then in July of 2008 was named the principal at Cottondale Elementary.

    I have been principal at Cottondale Elementary School for eight years and I love my job! I have extremely high expectations for myself and my staff, and fully believe that it is our responsibility to help every child reach his/her fullest potential.  It is my belief that every child should enjoy coming to elementary school every day because they are actively engaged in their learning by teachers who value and inspire them. 

    My favorite quote is by Rita Pierson, which says, “Every child deserves a champion; an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best they can possibly be.”
