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.
