Ms. Batista is one of many new teachers at Cottonwood High School. Batista teaches social studies but specifically teaches geography as well as world civilizations. Batista studied at Utah Valley University. She then worked for the juvenile court system as well as The Family Support Center of Utah.

She said that the most challenging part of teaching at Cottonwood is that she does not have as much time for each student as she did in her previous professions. This challenge is particularly relevant when working with the younger students.  As freshman transition into high school, they still need to adapt to their surroundings, just as a new teacher does.

Batista chose Cottonwood because of the support she gets from the staff.  Although she applied for many places, Cottonwood was her first choice. She appreciates her co-workers and she likes the fact that she does not feel out of place. Outside of school she likes to hike, watch movies, travel, and spend time with her friends and family. Cottonwood is very excited to welcome Ms. Batista to the Colt Family.
