Hello MATA Mustangs!
I am Mrs. Bates and I am one of the 3rd grade teachers here at Flora Arca Mata Elementary. I am very excited about our 2023-2024 school year!
This will be my 19th year of teaching and I've done all my teaching at Stockton Unified. I have experience in Kindergarten through 4th grade. However, I've spent over 10 years teaching 3rd grade and I definitely enjoy it!
Parents, please sign up for our ClassDojo. Both 3rd grade teachers will be using this communication app to keep in touch with parents. A code will be sent home for you to join our ClassDojo.

- A pack of pencils (any amount).
- Everything else will be provided for:)
