About the Teacher
I am Yolanda R. Flie, your child’s 5th Grade English Language Arts teacher. I am very excited to be your child’s teacher this year. A little about me… I grew up in Arkansas, our neighboring state, and graduated from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. I have a Master’s of Arts in Teaching from Belhaven University. I am also a military "brat", so I have had an opportunity to live in a few interesting places before moving to the South. My dad served 26 years in the US Air Force, and I think this is where I developed my love of traveling and meeting new people. ;-).
I am married to my wonderful husband of 24 years, Deon Flie, and we have three children, Jailyn, 20 Donovan, 18, and Dorian, 16. My family and I enjoy spending time together, traveling & visiting nearby relatives. We also are active in our church, Brown Missionary Baptist. I am a children’s ministry teacher and my children and husband participate in various ministries.
This is my eleventh year at DeSoto Central. I came here from Pleasant Hill Elementary. This is my fourth 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. 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.
