Meet the Teacher



My name is Miss Gates and I am the class teacher of Otter Class. I have been teaching at Aldington Primary School for 8 years now and been in Otter Class for 5 years. I absolutely love my job and love helping children grow both academically and personally.

One of my favourite things to do it read! I could get lost in a good book for hours! A book (or set of books) I could read over and over again would be Harry Potter! I love magic too so these are brilliant.

I also really enjoy going on adventures! I love finding new places that I have never been and exploring. I live near Dover so I am always keen to be by the sea.

Many of you might know, I love colour, glitter and anything that sparkles really! It always puts a smile on my face.


Can't wait to meet you all.


Miss Gates :)
