Heather Yates » Introduction


Greetings! For over twenty years, I served children and their families either as a Gifted teacher in both urban and rural school settings or as a therapist in a variety of nonprofit settings. In 2016, I bridged these two career fields and became a School Psychologist by obtaining an Education Specialist degree from Emporia State University. I believe having these earlier experiences enriches my ability to support meeting the academic and social/emotional needs of all students, but especially those who are identified as Gifted, equipping and empowering parents and providing research-based resources to teachers. 


I consider myself to be especially blessed to be able to be a part of the Fort Leavenworth School District community in serving those who serve us. Having both a father and a husband who've served in the military, I have the highest respect for the fine men and women who've dedicated themselves to protecting our nation and incredible admiration for their loved ones. 


Please feel free to contact me.
