Mrs. Kelli Bates

Originally from Ulysses, Kansas, I graduated from The University of Kansas with a bachelors degree in Elementary Education and masters degree in Special Education.  I began my teaching career in Kansas City, Kansas in 1999 where I taught kindergarten, first grade, second grade, and was a literacy coach until 2004.  At that time I began a new career as a stay-at-home mother to my three boys until 2013 when I returned to teaching.  This year I am teaching third grade at Prairie Park.  I most enjoy teaching language arts and making connections with my students.  In my spare time I enjoy running and reading.
