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!!!!!

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.

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.
