Joan Yates – Instructional Classroom Aide, Grade 1
Mrs. Yates earned a Master’s in Business/Information Systems at VCU, and a Master’s in Reading Education from University of Virginia. It has been her great pleasure to support the talented classroom teachers and eager young “Knights” of All Saints in their reading and writing activities in kindergarten through Grade 3 since 2010. Mrs. Yates feels privileged to witness our students take delight in buddy reading books and poems by favorite authors or enthusiastically present their journal writing and personal pages for class books. Mrs. Yates and her husband, Bill, have two grown sons. She enjoys reading, cycling, walking, baking and especially eating (preferably chocolate!) desserts.
