Thank you for taking the time to visit Coach Kates' social studies page. I am Coach Kates, or K2 is what a majority of the students call me. I am entering my fifth year at LGISD as a teacher and a coach. I have taught many different disciplines within social studies in my career. I graduated from Texas A&M with a degree in History in 2006, so needless to say I have a passion for all things HISTORY!! I am excited for the opportunity to make a difference in the life of your child on a daily basis. A teacher can impact a kid more in one day then many professions can in a lifetime. If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an e-mail any time at firstname.lastname@example.org. GO LEPS!!
