Degrees and Certifications:
I am Coach Yates and am very excited to become a Maypearl Panther this fall! I am joining my wife who became a Panther last fall and look forward to teaching and coaching the students of Maypearl High School. I spent the last 3 years at Venus High School teaching Business Education courses and coaching Football, Basketball, and Golf.
My background before education is in broadcasting and business. I graduated from TCU with a Bachelor of Science degree in Radio and TV Production and worked as a Radio Broadcaster for any years before starting my own business. My teaching career began in 2006 at Alvarado Junior High as a 7th grade math teacher where I remained for 2 years before moving to Mineral Wells ISD where I continued to teach JH Math and Algebra 1.
My wife and I live in Waxahachie where we enjoy being active in the community and with our family; together we have 5 boys and 5 grandchildren with another grandchild due this fall. It's an exciting time to be a Panther and I am looking forward to a great year!
