Hello! My name is Amber Yokum and this is my family. I am a 3rd generation graduate of Dickinson High School, class of '92. My husband, John, is a teacher and head swim/water polo coach at Alvin High School. Both my girls serve in the United States Army in different capacities. My oldest, Krysten, is 24 years old and this is her 6th year in the Army. Caitlyn is 17 and a senior at Alvin High School. She gave up her summer to complete basic training for the National Guard and she swims and plays water polo.

I am so excited for this year! This will be my 3rd year as Yearbook sponsor, and this year, I am teaching Pre-AP ELAR, 5th/6th grade split. This is my 4th year teaching in a public school environment and my 3rd year at Barber Middle School. My teaching experience prior to public education was in the business world teaching associates from cashiers to CEOs to take care of their customers; however, my heart has always been with children and teens. I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Business Management from University of Phoenix in 2007. I plan to begin working toward a Masters degree after my youngest daughter graduates from high school this year. 

The mission of the Dickinson Independent School District is to ensure that all students have successful learning opportunities that help them reach their full potential and add quality throughout their lives.
