Mrs. Elaine Coates
Fifth Grade Teacher
I have been a teacher at Canyon Springs for 23 years. I also taught at LAUSD for 7 years. I have taught Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade and 5th grade. I graduated from Oklahoma Christian College with a Bachelor of Science Degree and I have taken many classes at UCLA, CSUN, and the University of San Diego.
I was born in the great state of Texas and I grew up in small towns. We finally moved to a big town, Odessa, when I was in the 8th grade. Then I moved to sunny California, where I adopted my lovely daughter, Amy, when she was almost 3 years old. I am truly blessed to have her in my life. She is married to the best son-in-law in the world.
I have served on many committees since being hired as a teacher with the Sulphur Springs School District. I received the Apple Teacher Certification with my amazing 2nd grade team. We also attended Tech Camp. I am now a member of the 5th grade team with Mrs. Spencer. We work very hard to plan and execute the best lessons for our students. I am lucky to work with such a great group of teachers at Canyon Springs.
