Mrs. Courtney Gates

Hello and welcome to my page! I am Courtney Gates, third grade teacher at Powhatan. This is my third year teaching here at Powhatan and I couldn't be more excited. I graduated from North Carolina State University in May 2016 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. GO PACK! Besides rooting on the Wolfpack, I spend my time outside of school with my husband, family, friends, and three precious kitties that I love with all my heart! I am originally from Clayton so I am so happy to be back in my hometown doing what I love. I cannot wait to see what this year brings for me and my new friends :)
