Ms. Leslie Bates

Welcome to my page.  This is my first year to teach math at Gainesville Jr. High. This is my 24th year to teach.  I have always taught math.  I went to college at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma.  Most of my teaching years were spent with Dallas ISD.  I moved to this area to be closer to my parents.  They live in Ardmore, OK.  

I am widowed and I have 3 grown daughters and one grown son and a granddaughter.  I also have a chihuahua mix named Jaggar and a labrador mix named Eli.  

I like the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers, and the Oklahoma Sooners.  I enjoy hosting family parties. I love history especially British history.  I love math, writing, reading, puzzles, games, crime shows, and day trips.
