Degrees and Certifications:
Hi, my name is Amber Yates. I was born and raised in Watauga County; growing up I attended Parkway and Watauga High School. I graduated from Appalachian State University in 2011 with a degree in Elementary Education (K-6). Since 2011, I have worked as a lead Pre-k teacher, a bus driver, a cafeteria worker, and currently as an assistant teacher in the Watauga County School system. I have a 14 year old daughter named Ayla who loves to play volleyball and do crafts. In my free time, I love to be outdoors, travel, and spend time with my daughter. I am excited to be back at Bethel where I began my teaching career, and I am looking forward to a great school year.
