Lisa Crates

Alpha Kindergarten-Second Grade

Lisa Crates Bio

I graduated from Tennessee Tech University with my undergraduate degree in 1988 and my masters in 1989. I taught in Tennessee for eight years before moving to Texas. I started teaching in McKinney in 1997. I taught Kindergarten and Reading Recovery at Caldwell from 1997 to 2002. I joined the GT team in 2002 and have enjoyed teaching K-2 ALPHA since then.
I live in McKinney with my husband, Mike, our daughter, Lexi and my mom, Louise. We have two precious dogs that live with us too, Maizy and Evy. There is never a dull moment at the Crates house.
