My name is Angel Yoakum and I have worked in the Waynesville R6 School District for over 20 years. I started my career with Waynesville at Pershing Elementary (Fort Leonard Wood), as a 4th grade teacher. I have also taught 2nd, 3rd, and 6th grades. In 2009, I obtained my certification for Reading Specialist, and for the past 10 years, have been working to help students with specific reading skills. This is my first year at Freedom Elementary, as an Instructional Coach. I am excited to help our students find a love for reading and writing and I look forward to working together with you and your child's teacher to provide optimal educational experiences. Please let me know if I can help you in any way, here at Freedom Elementary.
On a Personal Note:
I am married to my husband of 37 years, George. We have 2 grown children, Taylor and Chelsey, and four beautiful grand daughters-- Madison, Jaylee, Kennady and River Grace. My husband and I also run a business in the St. Robert/Waynesville community. In my spare time, I love to read, listen to music, shop and spend time with family and friends.
