Mrs. Janice Bates
Hello, my name is Janice Bates. It is my pleasure to be teaching at Kissam Elementary. I am originally from Arkansas,and have lived in Texas for 23 years. I have been in the teaching field for 13 years and have grown to love the profession. First grade is a very special, memorable grade for children. It is my charge to ensure they have a wonderful experience!
I am married to Bruce, my husband of 29 years. We have two wonderful daughters, Jordan who is 24 attending college; Breanna is 19 and is a freshman at Tyler Junior College. They are the light of my life. Our family enjoys traveling to Disney World every year and traveling anywhere as long as we are together.
I cannot forget our absolute joy, Anna, our granddaughter. She is 18 months old and full of adventure and laughter!
