Ms. Young is going into her fifth year of teaching, and her journey in education has been a fascinating one. Her first two years of teaching were in Jacksonville, Florida with Teach for America. This experience shaped her thinking on justice and education. Ms. Young is an educator that believes education can free our students and provide them with a life that is filled with possibilities. After her two years with Teacher for America, Ms. Young moved back to California and continued her work in South Central, where she worked in a charter school for two years. This furthered her love for the cause of creating equity and transparency in the realm of education. When Ms. Young is not at work, she loves to travel, be in the great outdoors, watch movies, music and anything to do with sports. She is a proud mother as well! Ms. Young is extremely excited to be at Equitas and is ready to be a servant leader and create change in her classroom!
