Mrs. Young

I am so excited to be teaching your kindergartener this year! With all the challenges we have faced the past couple years, I feel my calling is even more important as we embark on this journey together of preparing your child for first grade and life :) I love teaching students the foundational skills required to read, a skill they will need for the rest of their lives. I strive to keep learning fun by engaging your child in learning various concepts through wiggle breaks (thanks, Jack Hartman). 

This is my 11th year teaching and third year teaching kindergarten at DME! I have previously taught 3K and first grade. 

My accomplishments in education within the last 5 years include: CES Reading Teacher of the Year (2016) CES Teacher of the Year & District Honor Roll Teacher (2018) Master's Degree in Curriculum & Instruction in Literacy

My husband and I moved to Lugoff a year ago and have no plans of moving away. We have a one year old daugther, Vayda and three dogs that keep us busy. In my free time I enjoy running, swimming, reading and the mountains!
