Mrs. Jen Bates


I am so excited for the 2018-2019 school year! This will be my 13th 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. This will be my fourth 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 five years with my precious family. I have been married to my husband Dean for 15 years and we have 3 wonderful kids Holland (10), Declan (6) and Wylan (6). We gained another child just over a year ago, our full of energy Boxer puppy 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!
