Degrees and Certifications:

Mrs. Yolunda Elam

I am a believer, a wife, a mother, a Yammie, a certified *FHL coach, and I currently serve as the 8th grade Spanish teacher at Permenter Middle School.  I have been a teacher of record for twenty years and this is my first-year teaching in CHISD—I feel like I have made it home, although I have lived in Cedar Hill since 2002.  I have taught all grade levels from Pre-K to 12th grade including summer school sessions.  I love, love, love, working with kids and I am proud and honored to be 1/12 of their success when they receive their graduation diplomas.  On a personal note, I have been married for twenty-nine years.  I have three adult children. I have 4 grandchildren, a fifth one due in November, and I absolutely adore my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  I have earned three associate degrees, a bachelor’s degree, two masters of Education degrees, and a total of 36 credit hours toward a doctorate degree.  I look forward to meeting each of you in person one day. *FHL-Fitness, Health & Life
