Welcome to Coach Cates' World Geography Class for the 2017-2018 School year at Gatesville ISD!!!


About Me:

I grew up a teacher's kid and even had my mom's class in 5th grade. I recognized early on that teaching was very special and the impact I saw my mother make on each student. I attended Sam Houston State University for college and double majored in History and Secondary Education. I am a teacher before anything else and enjoy my students entirely. This will be my 3rd year at Gatesville High School (SWARM ON!!!) and my 6th year total as a teacher. I am truly blessed and excited to be apart of such a great city, school district, and community.
