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!
