My name is Dana Bates and I will be the Math Interventionist this year at Groves! This will be my 9th year of teaching! My experience includes one year coaching/teaching PE for Conroe ISD, five years in 5th grade for Magnolia ISD and two years in 5th grade here at Groves! My bachelors degree is in Kinesiology and my Masters of Education is in Curriculum and Instruction from SHSU. In my spare time you will find me on a volleyball court, in the gym or doing something active! I am super pumped to be a Groves Grizzly Bear! Looking forward to inspiring your children to change the world! WE ARE GROVES!
