Amelia Cothran


I am in my 26th year of teaching. After teaching in the Tuscaloosa City and Hale County School Systems, I came to Thompson High School in 2005. In addition to teaching exceptional education, I teach secondary English and credit recovery/advancement, and I provide homebound services.  I have three children. My daughter graduated from Thompson in 2017.  My oldest son graduated from Thompson in 2009 and my middle son graduated in 2014.  When I am not at work, I enjoy reading, attending concerts, and spending time with my family and friends.
