Bachelor's Degree in Science of Elementary Education (K-6) and Special Education (N-21)
Welcome! My name is Kristen Gates. I started my teaching career 5 years ago. All of those years have been here at Mayfield as a special education teacher. I graduated from Slippery Rock University located in Slippery Rock, PA with bachelor's degrees in the science of Elementary Education (K-6) and Special Education (N-21). This year, I've become very excited in working with our budding learners on their journey through U.S. history after the Civil War to present day. This is a new area of content for both the students and myself to learn and in which we have had fun doing so. In addition to history I am also teaching math and science here at Mayfield. I have a passion for working with students with disabilities and helping them to grow and become excited about their learning. My goal this year is to ensure that all students leave Mayfield and ready to progress to the new chapter of their lives in middle school.
