Hi! My name is Mrs. Jody Young! I am so excited to be one of Stephensen Elementary's first grade teachers! This is my fourth 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 am currently enrolled at Capella University to pursue my Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy. I have one test to take and then can apply for graduation!! I will also be completing classes to earn a graduate certificate for a Mathematics Consulting Teacher through Boise State University this year.
My husband is a 5th 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 this to do is take their pictures! I also enjoy reading a variety of books and watching superhero movies!
