Favorite Quote - “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind” Dr. Seuss
My name is Dawson Yates and I am 25 years old. I grew up in Valley Springs, AR then eventually attended Harding University. After graduating in May of 2016, I spent one year as a Graduate Assistant Basketball Coach at Union University before moving to El Dorado. This year will be my second year filling my current position: Physical Educator at Retta Brown and Yocum Primary, seventh grade Assistant Football Coach at Barton Junior High, and Assistant Basketball Coach at El Dorado High School. This past December, I married a beautiful woman who teaches math at El Dorado High School, her name is Bethany Yates.
I believe all knowledge is useless unless we better the world with our actions. Anything taught is either reputation, revelation, or ruination. Therefore, I hope I only share knowledge that can benefit the world.
I became a teacher because I always thought Coach was a better title than Doctor. Also, as a coach, I have endless access to a library and gym.
I want parents, students, and teachers are all on the same team. Let’s be diligent in our efforts.
