About Me

My name is Joanna Bates and I will be teaching 3rd grade Reading and Language Arts. I am excited to be on this adventure at Fulton Learning Center. This will be my 18th year teaching, and through the years I have been an athletic trainer, taught high school and elementary PE, and 3rd, 4th and 5th grade Reading and Language Arts. My husband, Damien, is the boys basketball coach at The high school and have two boys, Chance and Bryce. Our family is glad to be a part of the Pirate Nation.


Mission Statement

To instill a love of reading in every student using their interests to drive their reading choices. 


My Interests

I love to read, watch basketball and watch movies with my family.
