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!
