Mr. Lin Cates

Hello and Welcome to my classroom website!  I am Lin Cates and I teach U.S. History and AP U.S. History.  In addition to my teaching duties I am also the head baseball coach.  This is my ninth year at South Gibson County High School and I am looking forward to another exciting and successful year.  

Just a little bit about myself.  I am a graduate of Westview High School in Martin, TN where I played baseball and basketball.  After high school I recieved a scholarship to play baseball at Jackson State Community College and after spending two years at JSCC I went on to further my baseball career and education at the University of Tennessee at Martin.  I graduated Cume Laude from UTM with a Bachelors Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in History in December of 2009.  I obtained my Master Degree in School Leadership from Bethel University in 2015 to complete my educational career.  My wife, Hillary, and I live here in Medina with our daughter, Hallie.  I am ready to have a great school year and I hope that you are too!
