Ms. Bethany Gates
Welcome to my Kindergarten Classroom! I am a 5th year teacher; new to District 200. I love children, teaching, and learning.
Here are some fast facts about me:
- My son Benjamin is 2.5 years old and he loves trucks, construction vehicles, Paw Patrol, and Thomas the Train.
- I went to Wheaton College (Education) and Loyola University Chicago (Theater).
- I taught in Africa for 2 years.
- I love traveling; I have visited Canada, Germany, Spain, Italy, Rwanda, Tanzania, Cambodia, and Thailand.
- My favorite hobbies are playing with Benjamin, gardenning, bike riding, going to Church, reading books, and spending time with my friends.
I am so excited to be at Whittier and teach your students.
We will have a Kickin' Kindergarten Year!
