Mr. John Yates

Welcome parents and students!

I am excited to say that this is my second year as a teacher at Hickory Ridge and I am looking forward to a great year! I was born and raised in the High Point area and graduated from T.W. Andrews High School.  I graduated college from Appalachian State University and received my masters from East Carolina University.   Teaching has always been a passion of mine and I can't wait to see what the year brings.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns don't hesitate to contact me! All contact information is listed below.  I'll be glad to help in any way I can. GO BULLS!!
