Mr. David Yates
Hello! I am the Art Teacher at E.O. Young and I love my school. I was excited to bring Art to E.O. Young for the first time in ten years. I feel that we built a very good foundation last year, and we will only continue to grow. I hope to instill an appreciation for creativity in our students, and give them an ability to express their ideas and emotions in positive ways. I want each student to be able to set goals and to use discipline and hard work to achieve them. I enjoy teaching the wide range of students from Pre-K to 5th grades.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Virginia Tech. Before becoming a teacher, I worked as a Paramedic for 5 years. In my free time, I enjoy sports, music, and the outdoors.
