Miss Yon

My name is Andrea Yon, and I am excited to be  a part of the Wagener-Salley family. I am a native of Wagener and  a proud graduate of Wagener-Salley High School (class of 2007). Joining the WSH family feels like coming home. 

I’m a first-generation college graduate with a passion for teaching and education. I graduated from USC Upstate with a degree in Secondary Education English. I have a masters of education in curriculum, instruction, and assessment from Walden University. 

This is my 9th year teaching and the biggest lesson I learned about education is that we can use it to build the life we want. In my class, we'll be getting to know each other through stories, discussions, collaborations. My biggest values in life include honesty, compassion, hard work, faith, love, and family. My biggest joys in life are the simple things like a good cup of iced coffee, books, laughter with my favorite person, and thunderstorms.
