I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Kate Gary, and I will be your child’s first grade teacher this year. I was born and raised in Breaux Bridge, but have been living in Parks for several years. I graduated from ULL with my Elementary Education Degree and then moved to Atlanta, Georgia. While in Georgia, I taught second grade for four years before returning to Parks. I also taught third grade for a year in Lafayette Parish. I enjoy watching movies, playing with my dogs Luna and Gizmo, and spending time with my family and friends. I am so fortunate to get the opportunity to work at a GREAT school with such GREAT students since 2012. I know that this year will be outstanding!
One way that we can have an outstanding year is by working closely together. First grade is a difficult year where students have to take on more responsibility for their belongings, school work, and behaviors. It is very important that we ALL work together to make this year a success.
