Mrs. Shaw


Hello Yates Mill Families!  My name is Emily Shaw and I am a First Grade Teacher here at YMES.  I am looking forward to my 11th year teaching!!

Growing up I lived in South and North Carolina and still have family residing in both.  I come from a family of teachers, and knew early on working with children was a passion of my own.  I am an alumnus of UNC (Go Heels!) where I received my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education.  After graduating from UNC, I moved to Raleigh, where I began working at Yates Mill and met my husband David.  On December 16th, 2019 we welcomed a beautiful baby boy to our family!

~A few of my favorite things: family time, being outside, traveling with friends, the beach, the TARHEELS, Reeses, Dr. Pepper, and Target~

Every day I strive to instill a love of learning in all of my students. I love being a part of the Yates Mill family and look forward to sharing this special place with you!  Let’s Dream BIG!
