My name is Shelley Bates. This is my 23rd year to teach in the Colbert County System. It is my thirteenth year at CHHS. I currently teach one 8th grade English, two 9th grade classes, and one 10th grade. I also sponsor the Jr. High Scholars Bowl Team. This year I am excited to add ACT Prep and History Thru Film to my schedule.
I am a graduate of Sheffield High School and UNA. I am married to Jason Bates, and we have two children, Jack (21) and Macon (16). I also have two big fur babies named Natty and Poot.
I love Alabama football and the Chicago Cubs, reading just about anything especially murder/mystery novels, watching Netflix, and cooking.
