Mr. Scott Bates

Hello everyone! My name is Soctt Bates and I am entering my thirteenth year of teaching.  I will be joining the OCHS staff as a social studies teacher and the head girls' coach for the varsity soccer team.  I come to Oconee after spending the last tweleve years at Apalachee High School in Barrow County, where I served as a social studies teacher and head girls' varsity soccer coach.  I will be teaching Economics and U.S. History this upcoming school year.  I am married to Lindsey Bates, who is a kindergarten teacher at Colham Ferry Elementary.  We have three crazy but amazing daughters.  We love spending time together as a family, and we can't wait to emerse ourselves in all things Warriors!
