Hello! I am Mrs. Kates. I am very excited for another wonderful year. This is my 20th year of teaching in Ken-Ton. I have a BS in Education from SUNY Fredonia, and a MS in Education from Buffalo State College. Prior to joining Lindbergh in 2011, I taught at Holmes Elementary School. I've taught both primary and intermediate grades.
               I am a product of the Ken-Ton district, and I reside in the Town of Tonawanda with my 3 children. My children are very active outside of school, so most of my free time is spent at hockey practices/games, dance lessons, baseball practices/games, etc.  I love to play outside, swim in our pool, and spend time with my family and friends.
             I look forward to a fun, exciting year! Please feel free to contact me at any time. My email is DKates@ktufsd.org, or you can always call the school office at 874-8410 and leave a message for me. I will return your call as soon as possible.
