About Me

I am Nathan Cates, the Bible History teacher and golf coach at Tyner Academy! I graduated from Lee University in Cleveland, TN. I am certified in History, Government, and Geography. I enjoy teaching and working with students and fellow teachers. Bible History is a very important subject to study. It is fundamental to study the Bible academically as the Bible had/continues to have a profound impact on many things: literature, art, music, politics, government, teaching, business, and virtually all areas of life. The Bible is important to study in order to truly explore American history and Western culture. The Bible is the ultimate in Cross Curriculum content! My favorite Bible character (other than Jesus!) would be Paul, as he truly understands the human condition. Paul delineates his struggles and exhorts the early Church to pursue Godly living. His writings are full of literary content, and the writings are also important in understanding human behavior. Personally, I enjoy spending time with my wife Ashleigh, our little girl Elizabeth, and our dogs: Wes and my Siberian Husky-Connor, family, and playing guitar in my rock band CORNELIUS. My other interests include: playing golf, working on and driving my Ford Mustangs (I have two- a 1965 Mustang and a 2008 Mustang GT Bullitt), working out/fitness/nutrition, playing guitar in the church band- Grace Point Band, cooking and eating!, singing, travel, video games, Monopoly, and sports (golf, basketball, and football). I look forward to a great, fun, and successful year for my students, colleagues, and myself. Go Rams!
