Samuel A. Gates
Graduated from UTSA in 2011 with a Bachelor's Degree in English, and a Teaching Certification.
I began teaching the next fall at Theodore Roosevelt High School and have been here since.
I have taught freshmen English: on-level, co-teach, and Pre-AP. This year I will be adding a Senior-level course to my day, focusing on college-readiness.
I have lived in Texas for 30 years. I am engaged and have a 4-year-old son.
I play drums, write poetry, and enjoy old-school video games.
