English Language Arts Teacher
Platte County High School

Hello everyone. My name is Derek Yost, and I teach English here at Platt County High School. A brief history of my education: in 2010 I graduated from Savannah High School. In 2015 I graduated from Missouri State University with a degree in English Education, and in 2018 I finished my Master of Education (MEd) in Educational Leadership from William Woods University.

I love to read and write! Language is the beautiful and complex conglomerate that binds our world together. It is a tool that we will all use in any field of choice. It is my goal to translate some of my passion for reading and writing into a great environment where students can learn in a fun, focused, and intellectual zone. We all have the capacity to succeed in English! 

Outside of the classroom, I have a ton of hobbies. I am an avid sports fan, and I coach football and bass fishing here at Platte County High School. I enjoy being outdoors, hiking, fishing, hunting, and canoeing. There is a big world out there, and I intend to see a lot of it before I leave this earth! Go Pirates!
