YES House Alternative High School

YES House Alternative HS is a place where kids can continue their education while in treatment. The teachers are all certified to teach in their respective subjects through the Oregon Teaching Standards Practice and the Oregon Department of Education. Please take some time to get know them through their short bio below.

Douglas CarterDouglas Carter – Education Coordinator and English Literature Teacher

Mr. Carter joined the education team in the fall of 2009. He is Oregon certified and highly qualified in basic mathematics. He holds two bachelor degrees and is currently working towards his master’s degree. Prior to teaching, he was a constituent writer for Senator Hatfield, Store and District manager for Blockbuster and Hollywood Video. In 2003 he left the retail world to return to Oregon State University to complete his second degree and begin his teaching career. Mr. Carter believes that students learn best from what they consider most relevant to their lives. This progressive view is seen in his math curriculum as it relates to the experiences, interests, and the abilities of the individual student. His passion for math brings the “Real World” into the classroom and answers the question, “When will I ever use this?”
