Yolanda Statema earned a B.A. in Elementary Education from Wheaton College (’86), and a master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Covenant College (’07). She is a member of Phi Lambda Theta International Honor Society for Educators. She has taught for over 25 years, and the majority of those years of teaching have been in schools committed to the classical curriculum. Before coming to VSA a few years ago, she spent seven years at Rockbridge Academy, a well-established classical and Christian school near Annapolis. Over the years Yolanda’s positions have taken her to northern New Jersey, England, Cape Cod, Annapolis, and now back to Cape Cod. She now lives in East Dennis, Massachusetts. While living in England she took four years off from teaching to work for and tour the world with Oak Hall Expeditions and Skiing! She loves to travel, read, cook, enjoy a good cup of tea, and do anything outdoors. Yolanda is forever grateful that God has given her a calling that brings such joy and fulfillment to her life!
