Amazing teacher. He was our form teacher in his first year at Tawa, almost always kept his cool. Very informative and very good teaching style. Supportive of students through difficult patches. Best teacher I had at Tawa Coll.
Friendly, popular and very knowledgeable teacher. He can get off topic but they are informative and entertaining. Mr Gates is one of the best teachers to ever teach me.
The finest teacher I have ever had! Inspiring, hilarious, sharp. I had him for English two years in a row and it was his teaching that got me passionate about learning. To him I owe my future.
Good luck with the baby, Mr Gates! You'll be a great Dad and I'm sure you're reading this in your spare time. From, Spidey...
in the words of a very wise comic book guy "best teacher ever" this guy even once offerd to help find me a job in a proffesional kitchen seeing as he had been front of house mannager for many awesome resturaunts though he may get side tracked and have pretty horrible taste in films to study(running on empty? blergh) he still taught me alot and i miss having his as my teacher and friend.
Awesome drama teahcer. Very laid back friendly. and probably the most aproachable teacher I know.
Mr gates is a gr8 Drama teacher, defiantly has a real passion for drama. But English, he just tends to get a little sidetracked, still had lots of good times, and learnt enough to pass with merit or something, funny guy, and very helpful when playing pranks on other teachers...
Mr gates is one of my favourite teachers! Great guy and really nice! He acknowledges all of his students and stops to talk to them in a chatty way. Fantastic guy. :)
hes a great teacher an also a very good dean......so keep yea u r da man
Such a wonderful guy. I've had the pleasure of having him in 5th form for english and this year (7th). He always stops for a chat when he sees me and asks how I am. Great teacher too, gives you feedback on how to improve your work and knows what he's talking about. Very friendly and kind. Best teacher I've ever had.
One of the best teachers ive ever had. Makes english fun and interesting plus gets the best work out of you. Really knows what hes talking about.
6th form english 2004! FAKE AND CUDGE DAY! good times... desk pyramids, tracy leading the class.... ahhh good times... not to mention i passed aswell... sooo passing (with little effort outside of school on my behalf) and fun = good teacher.
HE ROCKS!!! i dont think he suits the name "micheal" though. I wudve guessed he be more of an "Andrew" or a "Charles"
Hes a pretty good dean. Brader and him would have been awesome deans together. He can be kinda lame with his jokes sometimes, but hes really easy to talk to so its all goOd!!
Brilliant teacher!!!! Always making jokes and saying hi, he's very friendly and approachable.
he was an awesome 6th form English teacher :) He really made things clear and we had a lot of fun in his class.
Gates is the man! he taught me last year in year 9 and this year he helped my group out with a wicked prank on another teacher, hes a legend
