My name is Ryan Yates and this is my eighth year teaching Spanish 1 and 2 at Williams Field. I grew up in Mesa and attended Mesa High School, graduating in 1997. I learned Spanish as an LDS missionary serving in Northern California between 1999-2001.
I later earned a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish at San Diego State University in 2010 and got my teaching certificate in 2012. I was also fortunate enough to spend time studying at Nebrija University in Madrid, Spain.
