K-2 GT Teacher
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 three year old daughter, Lexi and my mom, Louise. We have three precious dogs that live with us too, Heidi, Maizy and Baby Lou. There is never a dull moment at the Crates house.
