Hello My Name Is...

Kenneth Yates




Welcome to a new school year. My name is Mr. Yates. I am the Physical Education Teacher at Clio Elementary.

I have been an educator for 31 years. I have taught and coached at Blenheim, Clio, and MCHS.

I have been married for 28 years. My wife (Jennifer) is a writer/author/blogger. I have one son (Josiah) who is married to Moriah. I have one daughter (Bethany) who is also a teacher.

My philosophy of education is centered on being able to relate the importance of education to my students.

4 ways that I try to convey that message as a teacher are:

1) try and make the students understand that education is the key to their future,

2) make learning enjoyable and interesting,

3) make each child feel some level of success each day,

4) and to make the learning environment as positive as possible

I believe these goals and beliefs help me to work harder at teaching and help me to be one of many outstanding teachers who go to work each day and try to make all students want to learn and achieve to their highest potential.

Thank you and have an awesome school year!
