    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 many 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 2 kids, my dog Luna, 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.
