About Mr. Cotchen

I have been teaching Middle School Social Studies since 2009. I have taught a variety of courses ranging from different eras in History to World Geography. I graduated from Millersville University in 2009.

I am married and have 2 kids,  a daughter Josephine and a son Jackson. I love spending time with my family, traveling up and down the east coast. I am an avid fisherman.  I also have my own boat, The Wanderer, that I take on many local lakes and the Susquehanna River for bass, musky and walleye. 

I am a HUGE sports fan! My family is from Western PA, so of course, I follow Pittsburgh Teams.


I absolutely love to teach and feel very lucky to be a part of the PAMS family. I look forward to traveling the world this year as we study the course that is…American History!
