Ms. Laurie Young
Hello and welcome to my page!! Just a little about me…..I am beginning my 24th year of teaching. I am so excited to be part of the SPED team and wholeheartedly believe in accelerating growth by readiness-not grade level!! I have taught special education, 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 am also a GIGI ot a 17-month-old little guy named Hayes! He is the love of my life! And....come January 2023, Hayes will be a big brother! In my spare time, I have a jewelry business and am a health coach. I love spending 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.
