    Welcome to all my new friends!!!!! 

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!  I am so excited to teach your 4th grader. My name is Mrs. Gates and this is my 10th year teaching. I am married to Mr. William and we have four amazing kids. Mary-Taylor just graduated from LSU and is in the real world working! Maggie is a sophomore at Mississippi State and is loving being a bulldawg. We are still a house divided between our Tigers and Dawgs. Hayes is in 9th grade and loves to play football, baseball, and deer hunt. Taylor is working and enjoying life on her own. We also have two puppies named Fatbaby and Charlie.

    Here is a little about myself.... I love to read, workout at Orange Theory Fitness, and decorate. I also love to shop (just a little). I just finished my Educational Specialist Degree and am a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy. I have a Master's Degree in Reading Literacy from Belhaven University and am a graduate of MSU Thinking and Writing Institute. 

    I know this is going to be an amazing year!!! Please email me at sgates@madison-schools.com if you have any questions.
