Ms. Young


After working for 13 years as a speech pathologist in the public school system in Texas, my family and I moved to Apex in 2000.  I was able to stay home with my youngest child for 2 years until she started kindergarten at Olive Chapel.  In 2002 began working at Olive Chapel as a teacher assistant in the AUII classroom.  During the fall of the 2003-04 school year, I jumped way out of my comfort zone and began teaching in the AUI classroom.  Working with the AU population became my joy and passion.  I spent 7 years learning and growing in that environment.  In 2009 I decided to make another change to a CCR teaching position.  This year will make my 8th year in the CCR position and my 15th year at Olive Chapel.  WOW! It does not seem like I have walked these halls for that many years.  I can truly say that I have loved the journey.  I continue to have a strong passion for teaching and look forward to many more years with the wonderful students and families of the Olive Chapel community. 

Besides being a teacher, I am a mother of four children and grandmother of 3 beautiful grandbabies (for now…).  I have a wonderful husband of 20+ years that has always encouraged and supported my journey as a teacher.
