Degrees and Certifications:

Mr. James Yates

My name is James Yates and I am excited about teaching the youth of John Tyler High School. I am a native Texan, but my father was in the Air Force, so we moved around when I was a child and I ended up in Oklahoma. I graduated in 1984 from Blair High School and then from Western Oklahoma State College in 1986, before earning my B.S. in Social Studies Education from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK in 1988 - GO POKES!

I am currently working on my Master's of History at Texas A&M University Commerce - Go Lions.

I have been marreid to my wonderful wife, Suzanne Yates for 28 years. We have 2 daughters, Kora Harvey of Tyler, and Tish Yates who is curently attending Le Tourneau University in Longview, TX.

I served in the Oklahoma Army National Guard and Texas Army National Guard in the capacity of a Cannon-Crewman in the Field Artillery and Mortars in Tyler, Texas.

My passion is history, but I also enjoy reading and writing and pondering the mysteries of life.
