Learning Coach Spotlight

Kay Gates- Learning Coach Expert & Advanced Endorsement- LCU Graduate

My name Is Kay!

Let me begin with saying what a privilege it has become to be a Learning Coach Expert and for the Learning Coach Advanced Endorsement.

I have been a Learning Coach for five years and counting.

A little bit about me. I have five grand babies. Family is the utmost important part in my life.

I coach two of my grand babies. One who's been a UTVA student for five years. She has worked really hard with my structure and with that, she is on the Student Council. Then I have one who is in special education working on his third year. He has come a long way from where he used to be, due to mine and his teachers consistency. I couldn't be more proud of them.

A little bit about me with my experience as a Learning Coach and how I've grown to succeed these achievements.

I can tell you now my first year as a Learning Coach wasn't too easy. It was a new beginning, a potential challenge with falling in a good groove that would benefit not only me but my grand babies as well.

I came up with ideas and strategies to improve things. Do not give up! You can get through this. As each year goes on you learn new tips, ideas, new structures to help the provisions of not only you but the students as well.

LuAnn Charles goes the extra mile to help guide you through things. She sets you up for success. She has shown me the meaning of what it takes to be a huge part of our children's success through these Learning Coach Success Workshops.

I am here to help anyone who needs tips, guidance, ideas, structure to help balance out with what the difference is between coaching vs being the parent during your child's schools time.

It takes dedication, hard work, and devotion. But I guarantee you if you stick with this you will get to see the beauty behind how great our teachers, staff, counselors, principal, students and YOU really are. We make UTVA!
