My dad had this dude...weird.He said he was really cool
I miss him so much since he retired! Never even had him as a teacher but I would go and visit him all the time, he had one of my siblings. He just a hilarious guy and everyone who never got to meet him missed out. One of the teachers, along with Chaney and Holmes, that made the History department at South so amazing (you know its the best in the school). Come out of retirement Mr. Bates!!!!!
such a nice man. love the outrageous things he says sometimes. came to many lax games and always asked about sports results at the beginning of class. good teacher, actually enjoyed his class. current events were interesting
Probably the nicest and most understanding teacher i have even encountered in my entire high school career. It really dissapointing that he is retiring...we will miss him so much!!
He is the funniest teacher in the school. He is easy, yet you will still learn all the matierial.
You'll realize how good of a teacher he is when you get into college. I had him my senior year and I learned more from him than from all of my college prof's.
Bates is the best History teacher out there, even though he does have his temper tantroms, hes still AWSOME!
Mr. bates is THE MAN, he is so funny and makes psych interesting and easy to learn. TAKE HIM SENIOR YR!!
Keep an open mind and Bates will complete your senior year.. he tries sooo hard to help everyone, and hes so funny!
One of the best teachers at south. You have to take Psych with him Senior year. He makes you laugh and you still manage to do well on the tests.
He's awesome. He has current events games where the winning group would get some candy. The tests are pretty easy. He would even attend sports events.
A legend at Newton South. Great sense of humor, nice guy, a must have teacher!
tries way too hard to get kids to like him... doesn't know much about psych outside of the textbook.. but fun class
Plays favorites.. Hope you're not on his bad list...
Mr. Bates is the illest, he is so cool. Fun teacher, get him if you can for psych!
mister bates! woo hoo! i love this man, great teacher!
Bates is the man. No complaints. Fun and easy classes if you have a half a brain.
The easiest teacher I've had at South. Somehow, people manage to do poorly on tests, but they are soooo easy. Mr. Bates is a really nice, friendly guy.
Best teacher I've ever had. If you can get him, do it now.
mr. Bates is one of my favorite teachers he is very comical and mischievous i have learned alot from him
