Bobby Gates

Hello My name is

Bobby Gates


I co-teach English 9, Geometry, and Algebra l. I also teach a Learning Lab and a Social Studies class. This is my 3rd year at MCHS. It gives me much enjoyment working with students with disabilities as well as other students. The challenge is teaching, while exploring and engaging students who have very unique needs. The ultimate goal is to create a learning environment where students can grow and be successful.

I grew up in Northeast MS near the birthplace of “Elvis”. I’m excited each time I go home to visit family and friends.

I’m a graduate of Jackson State University, Jackson, MS. This is where I met my wonderful and beautiful wife.  We have 3 children; Tesha, Tanya and Terrence; two grandchildren and a son-in-law.

I’ve taught Reading, Math, and Physical Education for over 25 years in the Jackson Public School District.

I take pleasure in learning and growing with you over the next year and the opportunities it will bring.
