Having observed Kaylin Yost as both a teacher and as a granddaughter , she is an amazing person, her students will not realize until later years what a great experience it was to be able to attend one of Mrs. Yost’s classrooms. She has the unique ability to recognize each students abilities/capabilities, and be able to get each student to achieve to even a higher level than thought possible. all the time enjoying the experience.excellent teacher.

Mrs. Yost is one of the most fantastic teachers I have ever met. She engages her students, creates a warm and inviting classroom environment and gives each of her students the opportunity to a high quality education. I am proud to say that I work with Mrs. Yost and have the privilege of witnessing the daily impact she makes on the lives of her students and the staff around her. She is one of the best and most passionate teachers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I am proud to say that she truly is a "life changer."

Kaylin consistently goes above and beyond for her students. She is always thinking of new ways to make learning fun! She genuinely cares about each and every student. It’s a rare occasion to go out in public and for her to not stop and talk to a student or parent. She is continuing her education by obtaining a Masters Degree in Mathematics at Marshall University.
