About Miss Young

I have been teaching for six years. This will be my fourth year teaching 4th grade. Prior to that, I taught middle school math and science. I love teaching 4th grade! We get to learn about so many interesting things. Each day is full of discoveries about ourselves, other people, and the world around us. 


Prior to teaching in elementary school, I taught ski and snowboard lessons for many years. I worked in sales and as an occasional guide for an adventure travel company. I've also spent time as a personal trainer. I love the challenges and joys of teaching. Each day is unique. There are so many wonderful and exciting things to learn about. I also treasure the relationships formed in the classroom.


I received my Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Idaho. I have a K-8 teaching certificate with a math endorsement and a highly qualified science teacher status. My undergraduate degrees were a B.S. in Movement Studies and a B.A. in Business Administration. I also completed a theatre minor just for fun. Suffice to say, I love school! 


I was raised in Pullman, Washington but have lived in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho for the past ten years. I enjoy the many recreational opportunities that Coeur d'Alene offers. I spend a lot of time gardening, going for walks by the lake, biking, skiing, snowboarding, and doing home improvement projects. This year I've been attempting to learn rowing, tennis, and the Argentine tango. I also enjoy practicing the piano, reading, writing, and traveling whenever possible. 


I look forward to getting to know each of you!
