Ms. Laurie Young

Hello and welcome to P.E.A.P (K-2)!! Just a little about me…..I am beginning my 20th year of teaching. I am so excited to be part of the P.E.A.P. team and wholeheartedly believe in our mission-accelerating growth by readiness-not grade level!!  I have taught first, second, and third grades for many years at Frederick Douglass Elementary School and John Kerr.

I am what you would call a “career switcher.” I have worked as a staff accountant, banker in Trust Operations, and a buyer for a major retail chain. After many years in the retail industry, I decided to go back to college and get my Masters of Education. As my family says….”You are a professional student.” What can I say??? I love to learn and my hope is to instill that love of learning to my students!

I have two wonderful grown children, Ryan and Casey. I have an 1* year old cat named Tigger and a 13 year old Bichon Frise named Bella Rose. In my spare time, I love to make jewelry, read, shop, and spend time with family and friends.

I believe that a strong home and school connection is essential to the success of each child. I am looking forward to working in partnership with you to make this a successful year for your child! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
