My name is Dustin Yates. I am from Bessemer, and attended James A. Davis Middle in the late 1970's and early 80's when it was located at Roosevelt Park. I worked for more than 10 years in commercial production. I worked both freelance and on staff for Vazda Studios in Birmingham. We primarily produced commercials and training films for companies including Regions Bank and HealthSouth.

My wife, Libba, and I have been married for more than 17 years. We have two daughters (6th grade and 9th grade).

Working with the students and staff here at Bessemer City Middle has felt like coming home!

Let me know how I can help you!
