Emily Cates

Hello! My name is Emily Cates, and I am so excited for this coming school year! We on the Kindergarten Team love helping kids feel right at home for their first year at Oakland. 

This is my third year teaching at Oakland, and my fifth year teaching overall. I grew up in Fort Bend ISD, and I am so grateful to get to teach here. I went to Oklahoma Christian University and received a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am also certified in ESL. I can't wait to see what this school year brings!
