Ms. Yamileidy Fontaine
My name is Yamileidy Fontaine, but my nickname is Yami. I am originally from Cuba, but was raised in Miami, Florida. I have taught K-5th grade intervention Reading and Math, as well as I have been a classroom teacher in grades 2nd -3rd. I received my Bachelor of Science: Education from Barry University, Miami, Florida and completed a Masters in Teaching and Learning: Special Education from Liberty University, Virginia.
Fun Facts: I am blessed with two great daughters one is 6yrs. old and swims the other is 11 yrs. old and loves ballet. I spend lots of quality time with them and supporting both in their chosen sport. When I have time for myself I love to listen to music as I run. I also enjoy learning from others whether it is cooking, a hobby or life experiences. One of my passions is decorating and making a space feel special for others. Therefore, I spend lots of time rearranging my house, lol. My second passion is teaching. I love encouraging my students to set goals and then reaching them. My favorite book is “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss. I am so excited to be a new member of the Dillard Drive Elementary Family this year!
