Grace Cotter, Teacher

Originally from Minnesota, Grace Cotter moved to the Pacific Northwest in 1999 and has been teaching at CLPAK for 11 years. Her talents and passion for teaching were honed at a young age. As the youngest of eight children, Grace always was caring for her older siblings' kids!

She also is a Licensed Massage Practitioner (LMP) and teaches at Bellevue Massage School. In her spare time, she loves to ride horses and spend time in the great outdoors - especially camping (but not in a tent!)

Grace is married to Mark and has three adult children and two grandsons.
