My name is Mrs. Bates. This is my sixth year teaching 1st grade at Centennial Elementary School and I could not be more happy to be here. I am an ASU graduate from the iTeach AZ program. I was born and raised in Chandler, Arizona. I live in San Tan with my husband, Josh, who is a SGT in the Army. We love going off-roading, hiking, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends.
