My name is Andrea Yon and I am very excited to be a returning member of the Williston Elko Middle School team this year! I teach 8th grade ELA and I cannot wait to meet my students and their parents. I am originally from Wagener, SC, a town very similar to Williston in many ways. I attended the University of South Carolina Upstate and graduated cum laude with my Bachelor of Arts in Secondary Education English in May 2011. After a hiatus from education, to explore other career options, I have returned to my passion. There is nothing more fufilling that enriching the life of a child through education. For fun, I love to spend time with my family, read, go on random adventures, and watch movies. My main priority is to help my students become successful inside the classroom as well as outside. This is going to be an awesome school year!
