Mrs. Shelby Coates

My name is Mrs. Coates, and I love teaching Pre-K! I am from New Orleans, but I graduated from high school and college in Kentucky. Before coming to McDonnell, I taught 4th and 5th grade reading, but I have enjoyed the time I have spent in Pre-K. I love watching the kids learn through play and grow so much in one year. When I am not at school, I love to color, play ultimate frisbee, and craft.
