Cora Young

My name is Cora Young, and I’m the Resource teacher at Wateree Elementary.  This is my ninth year teaching, and I’ve been at Wateree since I began my teaching career.  I absolutely love my job, and I have been selected as Wateree's Reading Teacher of the Year (2012-2013) and Teacher of the Year (2015-2016).

I grew up in Camden, SC, and attended Kershaw County Schools.  After high school, I attended the College of Charleston, where I graduated with a B.S. in Special Education.  I also have a M.Ed. in Instructional Accommodations from Francis Marion University. 

My husband, Jake, and I live in Lugoff.  We have a three year old daughter, Madeline, and two big dogs.  We love spending time together as a family.  I also enjoy running, reading, and cooking.
