Hello. My name is Yolanda Mills. I grew up traveling the world as the daughter of a United States Air Force Sergeant. We lived in 2 different countries and 7 different states by the time I graduated from High School. I later married someone in the Army and traveled again for several years to include another country and 3 states before I settled down in Columbia, South Carolina to live and work on the largest Army training base, Ft. Jackson. After 25 years of service for the Department of the Army I retired in 2017.
While raising my youngest son who is now 25. I attended the University of Phoenix and graduated in 2009 with a BS degree in Human Resources. A few years later I attended online classes from Grand Canyon University and graduated in 2017 with a Master’s Degree in Licensed Professional Counseling.
I have always been active fellowshipping and working with young people through teaching Sabbath School, participating in Pathfinders as a counselor, in youth choirs, as a Foster Mom and as Substitute Teacher through the years.
In 2019 I decided to follow my children and grandchildren to Rincon, Georgia. I was blessed with the opportunity to work as a Substitute Teacher and Facilitator at SACS. And now will be blessed with the wonderful experience of teaching 1st and 2nd grade in the coming school year.
I have always enjoyed traveling and seeing new sites, reading, cooking, singing in choirs and listening to gospel music and other styles of music with uplifting messages. My greatest joy and comfort is studying the Bible and learning of our Savior’s power to heal and restore us to a loving relationship with God and our fellow man. I pray that this spirit will be evident in the classroom as we not only learn reading, writing and arithmetic but the beauty of God as He lives in the human heart.
