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!

I am entering my 17th year of teaching elementary school, with this being my 4th year at Colham Ferry Elementary. Previously, I taught for 11 years in Barrow County. 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 experience were in Clarke County teaching kindergarten.

I love spending time with my family, which includes my husband (an OCHS teacher and girls soccer coach) and 3 daughters (all 3 are CFES Mustangs as well). We love spending time outside swimming, hiking and camping.
