Hello and Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year. My name is Nora Yates and I am starting my 15th year as a special educator for PWCS and Dumfries Elementary. This will be my 16th year working for PWCS (I started as a special education teacher's assistant in a self-contained Autism classroom). I have worked at all grade levels K-5. I received my BA in psychology at George Mason Un. in 2005 and my MA in Special Education in 2007. I am originally from WV where I attended Marshall Un. I followed my husband to VA in 1995. I have one son (24 yrs) and two daughters (19 yrs. and 13 yrs.) who all attended Dumfries. We have a dog named Bruce. I love watching horror movies, K-drama, C-drama, J-drama, and (thanks to my children and former students) Anime. I love listening to music especially K-Pop (Go BTS).

***Please take some time to visit the Special Education Home Learning Resources on the 
PWCS Home Learning Page.  We'll get through this together!         
Parents if you have any questions, please email me at yatesne@pwcs.edu.
