Field Mice

Welcome Field Mice Families,

Hello! My name is Jessica Gates and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Field Mice classroom.  I graduated with my Bachelors in Elementary Education (K-6 emphasis) in Anchorage, Alaska and began teaching Kindergarten the next fall at a German immersion charter school.  I then completed a Masters of Education degree, emphasis as a Reading Specialist.  After seven years teaching at the same school, my husband and I moved to Austin for his job this past January.  I started working at Child’s Day as the lead teacher in the Colt’s room, and am very excited to become the lead in a Pre-K classroom!  Working with children has always been my passion, and I look forward to the positive impact my team and I can make in the lives of your children.

This year we will work toward the common goal of Kindergarten readiness by continuing to expand your children’s skills in Literacy, Math, Science and Discovery, Social and Emotional Development, Fine and Gross Motor Development, Problem-Solving, and Self-Motivation.

My team and I will always strive to provide an environment where your children are able to express their feelings appropriately, feel supported and cared for, build upon their skill set, and feel confident enough to take risks in a safe and encouraging space.

It is a privilege to be able to spend the year with your child. I look forward to working together with you to make your child’s experience in the Field Mice a great one.
