My name is Tina Mott. I have been teaching within Adams 12 Five Star Schools for 19 years. I graduated from Metro State College with a double degree in Biology and Chemistry. Science RULES! I have two Master’s Degrees. One is Secondary Science Education and the other is in Library Sciences. Yes – I love to read! I have a daughter named Alyssa. She is a special needs child and is completely homebound. I love sharing her story with my students. Alyssa and I have two pets. Emma is a King Charles Cavalier Spaniel/Poodle mix and Cora is a domestic shorthair cat. They are both lovers that fill our hearts with joy. I also have 2 classroom pets, Skinny Pigs. Our brown one is Gizmo and our pink one is piglet. If you don't know, see if your student can explain what a skinny pig actually is. I look forward to working with all our kids this year!!
