Hi, my name is LaStar Yates, and I am a former FLMS Brave myself. During my years at Ft. Loudoun, I enjoyed cheering the basketball teams on and participating in many clubs, including the National Junior Honor Society. I love reading now, but when I was in school I didn't realize how important and fun reading could be. I thought I wanted to be a pediatrician or nurse, until I realized my passion for reading later in life. I never have been the best in math and had to work harder to do well in those classes.
I have been a teacher for 11 years, 10 of those being her at FLMS! When I first started this teaching endeavor, I never thought I would end up at the middle school level, let along the same school I attended as a middle schooler. I found that I fit right in with the kids here. It's always a great day to be a BRAVE!!
On a personal note, I have been married for 14 years to my high school sweetheart, and we have 3 beautiful and rowdy children, Baylee (11) , Xander (6), and Coby (3). Life is never dull!!
