Dr. Cotton

Hi and welcome to World Cultures.  My name is Dr. Magalenn Cotton.  I began here at Wellstone in 2013, but my role has changed from a science specialist to our new World Cultures Specialist. I can truly say that I have found my niche.  Although, I have been teaching for over 25 years, I consider each year a first year. It keeps me on my toes! 

A little about me...  I am happily married and I have 4 adult age children.   I also have 4 grandsons and a 5th gandson on the way! With all this happening in my life, I took a little "me" time and decided to complete my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership.  I am proud to say that I am a 2018 graduate of Northcentral University. 

My goal is to inspire children to respect all cultures and appreciate each other for who they are, and from where they have come. I believe when our children can share themselves and listen to other peoples' stories, it will shape their future through empathy and love.
