Jill Gates

I grew up in Essex and came to York in the early 1980s to do my PGCE. After spending a year in Spain, God opened the door for me to teach in York and I never left! I have worked as a languages teacher, careers advisor and youth support worker. I recently left a part-time post at York College and am excited about what new doors God will open for me. Steven and I got married in 2000 and we have loved being part of Gateway and helping with the stewarding and welcome teams. I am also involved in CAP and Reflect. In my free time I like to escape to the mountains or walk in the countryside to refresh. As a people person, I also enjoy nothing better than to meet up with friends for a coffee and chat.
