Kathy Bates

Development

Kathy was asked to join the ETC Board after retiring from full-time teaching at McKinley Elementary in 2016. Now she is a grateful grandmother, and enthusiastic community volunteer.
As a Kindergarten teacher Kathy saw firsthand how “arts change lives.” ETC workshops held in the classroom allowed students to integrate STEM concepts using arts. The ETC productions and classes helped students develop concept of self and grow in self-confidence.
