    Welcome to all my new friends!!!!!

    Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year! Despite these trying times, I am so excited to teach your 4th grader. My name is Mrs. Gates and this is my 9th year teaching. I am married to Mr. William and we have four amazing kids. Mary-Taylor is a senior at LSU and enjoys being a Tiger. Maggie is a freshman at Mississippi State and is loving being a bulldawg. I guess we are now officially a house divided!!! Hayes is in 8th 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, run, and decorate. I just finished my Educational Specialist Degree and am a National Board Certified Teacher in Literacy. I have a Masters 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.
