Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kara Gates
Welcome to second Grade!
This is my 12th year in the School District 308. I graduated from Elmhurst College, in Elmhurst, Ill., with degrees in early childhood education and speech and language pathology. I also have a master’s degree in instructional technology from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb. Additionally, I achieved national board certification in 2007. I started my career at Boulder Hill Elementary School where I taught second grade for three years. I have been a part of the Churchill second grade team since the school opened in 2005. For the past three years I have been lucky enough to be a part of a second grade job sharing position.
I'm looking forward to an awesome second grade year.
