Mrs. Yelder


My name is Mrs. Yelder and this is my first year teaching with Pittsburg Unified School District.  I am very excited to join this amazing team at Martin Luther King Jr. Junior High School this school year 2018-2019.  I have taught at schools in Brentwood and Oakley as well as in Student Programs with Contra Costa County Office of Education.  In addition to my career in education, I am a proud veteran of the United States Navy. In my military career, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to travel to many different countries. I enjoy sharing my travel experiences with my students.

It is my passion to teach using different learning modalities that support the many unique ways of learning.  I enjoy making learning fun!  I am looking forward to every minute of many successful years as a teacher with our Education Success Team at Martin Luther King Jr. Junior High School.

Please feel free to contact me for information regarding your student.


Develop a passion for learning. If you do, you will never cease to grow.
