Mrs. Angel Yoakum

**In light of our recent school closure, I wanted to provide some additional resources for you and your child, if needed. I know regular classroom assignments have been assigned, but if you need other avenues of learning resources, I have posted them for you! Reading is an integral part of every school day, therefore I have included a few sights which provide read alouds and access to good on-line books. Don't forget to take those all-important brain breaks throughout the day! Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help out in any way. You can reach me at
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, and I am excited to help our students find a love for reading and writing. 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.
