Hello! My name is Alisa Yates and I am a first grade teacher at Pathfinder Elementary in the Platte County R-3 school district. My husband Joe and I have been married for 12 years. We live in Kansas City with our two energetic sons, Evan (8) and Owen (7). I graduated from Park University with my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on special education. This is my 11th year in education and teaching is my absolute passion! In my down time, I enjoy spending time at my sons' sporting events and we love to travel!
I love teaching first grade because it is a year of many exciting FIRSTS! Reading, writing, math, science and social studies will be our primary focus. Leadership skills, technology integration and having fun are imbedded in every subject.
Feel free to contact me via email with any questions. School/ home communication is an important component of every child's success. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with your first grader!
