Mrs. Lindsey Bates

My name is Mrs. Lindsey Bates and I am thrilled to be a Colham Ferry Mustang teaching kindergarten this year! What a great place to grow and learn! We're going to have a blast making new friends, making memories, and learning!

Previously, I taught for 11 years in Barrow County at both Bethlehem Elementary School and Yargo Elementary School. During my time there, I taught 1 year of kindergarten, 5 years of 1st grade, and 5 years of ESOL (grades k-5th). My first two years of teaching were in Clarke County at Fowler Drive Elementary School teaching kindergarten.

I love spending time with my family, which includes my husband (an OCHS teacher and girls soccer coach) and 3 daughters. We love spending time outside swimming and riding bikes. We also love packing a picnic and going on adventures!
