Ms. Kelly Kotora

I was born in Quantico, Virginia, and as a child lived in many different and interesting places, including Japan. I moved to Huntsville when I was 14 years old.

I moved to Madison in 1998.  I have a son at Mississippi State University and a daughter at Discovery Middle Schooll. Both of my children attended Madison Elementary for kindergarten through sixth grade. Our family has a dog, a gecko, fish, and two cats. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, visiting new places, diy home projects, reading, and Alabama football!
