Hello! My name is Kelly Bates. I am beginning my second year as a PreK teacher at Cherokee Elementary. I attended Jacksonville State University and earned my Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education and my Master's Degree in Elementary Education. I retired from Cherokee County Alabama with 25 years service in the elementary classroom before coming to Cherokee.
I am married to Greg Bates, and have 3 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, and 1 granddaughter. I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, and working in my flower garden.
Please feel free to contact me by email, phone, or our class Remind app.
