Hello my name is Tyrell Yarbrough and I am super excited about being your childs first grade teacher this year. I look forward to meeting you and getting to know more about you and your child. This is my first year teaching first grade but it is not my first year in education. After graduting with my bachelors from Western Illinios University in 2010 I began working at a theraputic day school called Allendale. During my time there I worked with all age groups ranging from first graders to seniors in highschool. After seven years of working at Allendale I transitioned to Round Lake District and I worked in several elemantary schools within the district. It was there that I realized my passion for teaching and having my own classroom. From there I enrolled in graduate school at Grand Canyon University and recieved a Master's degree in elementary education. Last school year I student taught a third grade class at Village Elementary in Round Lake Beach, IL. Im grateful to now be teaching first grade here in Antioch and I can not wait to get started.
I live in Round Lake Beach, IL. I just recently became a happy dad to a beautiful baby boy named Myles. I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and co-workers. I'm a very artistic person that likes to draw and create music. I also love to workout and stay active.
