Mrs. Yolanda Van Ness

Hello! My name is Yolanda Van Ness and I am a first teacher at Harmony Hills Elementary. This year I start my 30th year in education! I am just as excited to teach your children this year as I was my first year teaching! Previously, I taught grades K-5 and I have worked for a non-profit educational foundation where my role was to assist teachers (from across the United States) in establishing a solid and sequential curriculum for their students. I graduated from The University of Texas at San Antonio in 1992. Thank you for sharing your children with me. My promise to you and to your children is that I will do everything possible to help them reach their optimal potential. I will give them back to you at the end of the school year full of wonder, knowledge, and growth.
