Hi! My name is Mrs. Jody Young! I am so excited to be one of Stephensen Elementary's first grade teachers! This is my fifth year teaching at Stephensen and my eighth year teaching in the Mountain Home School District! I am excited to make this my best year yet!
My Childhood Education
I grew up in Mountain Home and attended schools in the Mountain Home School District for all of my childhood! I went to East Elementary, Hacker Middle School, Mountain Home Junior High, and graduated from Mountain Home High School in 2006.
In May 2010, I graduated with a Bachelors of Science in Elementary Education K-8 and a literacy minor from Lewis-Clark State College. I completed my Special Education credentials through the American Board for Certification of Teacher Excellence in 2012. I have recently been awarded my Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy from Capella University. I have also earned a graduate certificate for Mathematical Consulting Teacher through Boise State University this year.
My husband is a 6th grade teacher at Hacker Middle School. We have three amazing children, Brody, Tanzen, and Scarlett!
I enjoy being a mom and hanging out with Brody, Tanzen, and Scarlett. My favorite thing to do is take their pictures! I also enjoy reading a variety of books and watching superhero movies!
