Mrs. Jamie Bates

I am so excited about being at Edison Elementary! This will be my 26th year teaching and fourth year at GISD. I received my Bachelors in Science of Education from Oklahoma Panhandle State University. 

I come from a long line of educators in my family. Growing up in a rural area in Oklahoma, I greatly enjoy the outdoors and animals.  Formerly known as Ms. Hogg, I have been blessed to marry "Mr. Jimmy" as my students call him.  I have one son, who is married, who has blessed me with a grandson. My husband and his two beautiful daughters also have blessed me with two beautiful grand-daughters and one grandson.

I can't wait to get this year of fun learning started! Feel free to contact me anytime!  I truly believe that we are a team in your child's education.  The more we work together and keep up to date on what is going on in your child's life, the better we can both help them achieve their dreams and goals in life.
