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!
