Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Megan Yates
I am thrilled to be here at Prospect starting my 15 year of teaching and my second year teaching 4th grade! I have also taught 1st, 3rd and 5th grades. I have a genuine love for kids and teaching. I grew up in Southern California and moved to Idaho 12 years ago. My husband is a local Law Enforcement Officer and we have two precious children ages 14 and 4. I believe that teachers have the opportunity and responsibility to help students excel in their strengths and grow in their weaknesses. I want my students to gain confidence in their abilities, learn to take risks and challenge themselves. I have a heart to know the "whole" child and to encourage them towards success in all areas of life. I treat my classroom as a "family" and emphasize the characteristics of respect and kindness. I also encourage my students to focus on the positive aspects of their strengths with the hope of creating an enviornment that feels safe and empowering. I believe that ALL students can learn. I look forward to getting to know each student and family this year!
