    Welcome to my favorite fourth graders and their parents!

    Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am excited to teach your child English Language Arts. Please check the web page to see updates for our classroom. 

    Welcome to my 4th-grade classroom. We are planning to have an amazing year!!! My name is Mrs. Gates and this is my 7th year teaching. I am married to Mr. William and we have four great kids. Mary-Taylor is a sophomore at LSU and loving living in the sorority house. Maggie is a junior and a track star. Hayes is a sixth grader and spends his free time playing football and baseball. Taylor is finishing up her time at JCJC. We have two puppies named Fatbaby and Charlie. I have a double master degree from Belhaven University and am a graduate of MSU Thinking and Writing Institute. We are a house divided since Mr. William cheers for the MSU Dawgs and I cheer for the LSU Tigers!!!! Please email me at sgates@madison-schools.com if you have any questions.

    Go Mavs!!!!
