Welcome to my teacher website! My name is Mrs. Bates and I teach the Amancear AM Preschool class at Ashland Ranch. Our program is 4 days per week; Monday-Thursday. Our program includes students that qualify for special education services, as well as tuition enrollment. The morning session attends from 8:53-11:23 Mon, Tues and Thurs, and from 8:53-10:55 on Wednesdays.
This is my 11th year teaching in Gilbert Public Schools. Before teaching preschool, I taught 4th grade for 8 years. I am married to my husband Dallas, and together we have 4 big dogs and a cat! In my free time you will find me in my workshop, building and creating with power tools, paint and lumber, or cooking at home and spending time with my family!
