Welcome to Mrs. Young’s 3rd grade Class Page
My name is Lesley Young. I have been teaching for 21 years. I truly love my job. I have taught at 5 Texas school districts. I have exprience with every grade level. I spent most of my time coaching junior high sports. I left to gym to be home with my babies. I moved into junior high history. 3 years ago, I came home to Cooper Elementary. I have taught 2nd grade for 2 years. I will be teaching 3rd grade ELA (English and Language Arts) and Social Studies. I am excited to move up.
I am married to Rocky Young. He is a hometown boy. We have been married for 19 years. We have 2 fablous children. Gustin is 15 years old. He will be a sophmore at CHS. Our baby will be in 6th grade this year. Her name is Laney. We live just outside of Cooper. We enjoy the outdoors. We have pets, cows, and tractors. We also enjoy our church. We attend East Delta Baptist church. Family time is a must!
My philosphy of education is that all children can learn. I want to teach children to love to learn. If I can make kids feel safe and loved we can move mountains. Students and teachers are pushed to the extremes these days and I do may best to stay calm and teach on. I want my students to enjoy school. We will meet our goals one step at a time. Your kids become my kids during the time I get to spend with them. They always teach me more than I could ever imgaine.
Touch a heart and change a life!
