Yolanda Statema earned a BA 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. Fourteen of her 22 years of teaching have been in schools committed to the classical curriculum. Before coming to VSA last year, 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. 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!
