Mrs. Sottoriva has taught 8th grade English at CMS since 1994, when her husband retired from active-duty (Army) and they moved to Carlinville, her hometown. She considers it a blessing to be able to teach in the district where her father once taught in a one-room country school, her mother was school nurse, she attended kindergarten through high school, and where her two sons were fortunate to have obtained an excellent education as well.
