Mrs. Jen Bates


I am so excited for the 2020-2021 school year! This will be my 15th year in the classroom. I taught my first year in Kentucky after graduating from Western Kentucky University and the next eight years I taught in Tennessee. I also obtained my Masters in Education during this time. This will be my sixth year teaching for the best district, PISD! I was lucky to open Light Farms Elementary and even luckier to still be teaching with an amazing 3rd grade team! I have experience in 3rd grade and kindergarten, 3rd grade being my favorite grade to teach. I can not wait to see what this school year has in store for my classroom and kiddos!


I have lived in Prosper, TX for just over seven years with my precious family. I have been married to my husband Dean for 17 years and we have 3 wonderful kids Holland (12), Declan (8) and Wylan (8). We gained another child just over three years ago, our full of energy Boxer named Fred. As you can imagine, our house is never quiet or boring. 

I can not wait to see how my students learn and grow this year! Get ready for a year of growth, fun and friendship!
