About the Teacher/Welcome Msg
I am Yolanda R. Flie, your child’s 5th Grade English Language Arts. I am very excited to be your child’s teacher. A little about me… I grew up in Arkansas, our neighboring state, and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville and have a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Belhaven University. I am a military "brat". My dad served 26 years in the US Air Force. I think this is where I developed my love of traveling and meeting new people. ;-)
I have been married to my wonderful husband of 21 years, Deon Flie. We have three children, Jailyn, 18, Donovan, 16, and Dorian, 14. My family and I enjoy spending time together and traveling to visit nearby relatives. We also are active in our church, Brown Missionary Baptist Church. I am a children’s ministry teacher and my children and husband participate in various ministries.
This is my tenth year at DeSoto Central. I came here from Pleasant Hill Elementary. This is my second year in fifth grade. I have taught fourth grade before and have worked in Special Education while at Pleasant Hill.
Prior to working in education, I have been a stay-at-home mom, or what I like to call a Domestic Diva! I enjoyed that successful career for six years before deciding to fulfill my call to TEACH.
I look forward to diving into this school year with your child and believe that it’s okay to have fun while doing it. I hope you and your child are looking forward to a FANTASTIC 5th grade year, because we will be striving for nothing less.
