Early Childhood Special Education Teacher
Great Beginnings - Barry School

Welcome! My name is Alisa Yates and I look forward to teaching your child this year at Great Beginnings Early Childhood Education at Barry School. My husband Joe and I have two sons, Evan and Owen. They keep us busy with Platte County sports and activities! In our downtime, we enjoy traveling, spending time outside, and being adventurous (ask me about the time I was nearly bitten by a rattlesnake!).  I graduated from Park University with my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood Education with an emphasis on special education. I also have my graduate degree in Language and Literacy.  I've been teaching in the Platte County School District since 2013 and have been an educator since 2008.

I am excited to have your child in my class this year! Early education is my passion and preschool was a favorite childhood favorite memory thanks to my wonderful teacher, Miss Kathy. In fact, she and I still have a relationship today and I consider her my mentor.  My philosophy is... relationships must be built before learning can take place. Early Childhood Education is the foundation of learning and I will work in partnership with you to make sure your child has a positive and encouraging experience in a safe and caring environment.  

Please feel free to contact me via email with any questions. Open communication is an important component of every child's success. I'm looking forward to a wonderful year with your student!
