Hi, my name is Mrs. Elizabeth Yates and I am thrilled to be at Maxwell and working with Mr. Khosravi and Mr. Wertz and a phenomenal staff of professionals. This is my 11th year in DPS where I have taught special education, coached teachers as a humanities facilitator, and worked as both an assistant principal and a principal. I am passionate about children learning how to read and becoming lifelong readers. I grew up in San Diego, California and graduated from the University of California, Irvine. I enjoy reading, riding my bike, gardening, and spending time with my husband and three dogs.
