Meet Mrs. Bates
    I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. I have been teaching at Washington West Elementary since the fall of 1989. I live in Olean with my family. My husband is the tennis coach at St. Bonaventure and in his spare time he likes to do magic tricks. We have three children. Our oldest daughter, Karolyn, lives near Pittsburgh, PA with her husband, Andy. They have four children. Our son, Thomas, is a 10th grader at OHS and our youngest, Anna, is a 7th grader at WW.
