Cotter Public Schools

 Vanessa Thomas-Jones, Superintendent

I am a native to Baxter County and proud Cotter High School graduate.  I began my career in education in 1996 as a fourth grade teacher here at Amanda Gist Elementary.  I went on to teach Kindergarten, first grade, and seventh grade Literacy before going into administration in 2006.  I was an assistant principal for four years and served as building principal for seven years at Mountain Home Public Schools.  The experience I gained in those positions prepared me for my current role as superintendent.  It is a pleasure to work in the school and community where I grew up and to serve the families here.  My background and passion for meeting the needs of the whole child make my work here very rewarding.  Cotter Public Schools provides a rich learning environment and personal experience for students with a wide variety of opportunities for growth and enrichment.  We have a place for you.
