Mrs. Kimberly Gates
Hello! My name is Kimberly Gates. I live here in Athens with my husband Sam, my two awesome girls (Spencer and Sloane), and two rescue animals, Daisy and Lucy. I love to read, any type of sport, and spending time with my family on the water. We love the river!
This is my 11th year of teaching! I graduated from Athens High School and attended Calhoun where I played softball. I then graduated from Athens State with a degree in Mathematics and completed my masters at the University of North Alabama.
I currently teach the Project Lead the Way Engineering and Medical Courses. (Design and Modeling, Automation and Robotics, and Medical Detectives) I attended and completed all trainings for PLTW at Auburn. I LOVE teaching these hands on and rigorous courses!
I am also the advisor for the Technology Student Association. We gladly welcome any 7th-8th grade student who would like to join! Check out our website here: https://amstsa.weebly.com
