Welcome to 1st grade! Your child's adventure begins in room 206 at William Yates Elementary. I am looking forward to a fantastic year with your first grader. I hope you enjoy this web site as an additional way to stay in touch and to enhance home to school communication.
This is my 18th year of teaching and 13th year at William Yates. I have been married for 27 years to an educator as well; Rick. Rick is the Purchasing director for the North Kansas City School District. We have two children; Markus, who attends MCC, majoring in Engineering and Hannah, a Freshman at MSU in Springfield-majoring in Criminal Justice.
Here's to a great year as we walk hand in hand together through the exciting journey of 1st grade!
