• Welcome to 2nd grade!

    My name is Christie Yates and I will be your child’s teacher this year. This is my first year at Dickerson, but it will be my 23rd 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 last year. We are looking forward to exploring our new home state and are open to great places to visit- so please share!
