K-8 FACULTY & STAFF

Erin Bates

Erin is a Sequoyah alumna (class of ’04) who knew she since she was in the Treehouse classroom that she wanted to come back and teach at Sequoyah. She attended Immaculate Heart High School and went on to graduate from Loyola Marymount University in 2012, with a degree in elementary education, and eventually her teaching credential. During that time, she focused her studies on progressive education and tried to integrate her learning about teaching methods in traditional public school settings with how she learned as a student at Sequoyah. In 2016, she received her Masters of Education from Cal State Los Angeles, focusing on literacy and diverse literature in the young elementary classroom. Erin loves working with her former teachers and enjoys keeping alive for her students the special Sequoyah traditions from her childhood.
