Mrs. Bates

I graduated from the University of South Carolina (Honors College) in 1999 with a BS in Experimental Psychology.  I continued at USC and graduated in 2000 with a Masters of Arts in Teaching.  I started my teaching career at CrossRoads in 2000 and taught math and science until 2005.  I taught Adult Education in our district for 4 years and returned to CrossRoads in 2010.  I've taught both math and science over the years and enjoy connecting the two subject areas in my science classroom.

My husband is also a teacher in the district and we have 2 wonderful children who attend D5 schools.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling, cheering for my son on the soccer field, and watching my daughter dance.
