Mr. Yates, River and Ryder
  • Mr. Jason Yates

    My name is Jason Yates and I am the 8th Grade Art teacher as well as the 7th Grade Advanced Art teacher. This is my second year at Mance Park Middle school and I am excited to be back. I am a Huntsville graduate and Mance Park is where I developed my love for art. Go Hornets! I graduated from Sam Houston State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I have over ten years of experience in the private sector as a graphic designer and illustrator. I also worked as a professional artist during that time, focusing on portrait painting. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah, who is a 2nd grade teacher for Montgomery ISD and we have two amazing boys named River and Ryder. My goal this year is to share my knowledge and love of art with your children. I will introduce them to the history of art and the different avenues of creativity they can explore to express themselves. I am looking forward to a great year!
