• Welcome to 2nd grade!

    My name is Christie Yates and I will be your child’s teacher this year. I am thrilled to be at Dickerson for another exciting year in 2nd grade. This year is my 24th year as an educator; all but two years have been in elementary school. I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades and served as a school counselor. My husband and I are the proud parents of three children: Maggie, Molly, and Jack (plus two furry babies). :) We spent most of our lives in Texas and moved to New Jersey a few years ago. We are looking forward to exploring our new home state and are open to great places to visit- so please share!
