Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Chelsy Yates


Hello everyone! My name is Chelsy Yates and I am proud to say that I am a graduate of Johnston City schools. It is great to be teaching in the district that helped shape me into the person that I am today. 

 This is my third year teaching at Washington Middle School. I taught 8 years in Galatia before I came to work here. I  taught first grade, fifth grade, and sixth grade at my previous school and now I am lucky enough to teach 6th and 7th grade Reading in Johnston City.

 I am married to a wonderful man, Ryan Yates, and together we have a three year old son named Brandon. We also have two dogs, Bella and Jasmine. 

 In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. But, my favorite place to spend my time would be at the ocean.

 I believe that to be successful, teachers and parents should work together to help their students learn and grow.

 Please feel free to contact me if you ever need any help with school work or have questions.
