Get to Know Mrs. Young
Hi Longwood Lions! This is Mrs. Young and this is my eighth year at Longwood. I started at Longwood working in the Y Safe and Sound program before and after school. That same year I started volunteering in the LMC with Ms. Kouri and I joined the PTA. I have now been a Teaching Assistant for the last 4 years. I grew up in Lemont, a community not far from here. I went to Southern Illinois University in Carbondale. I love Southern Illinois, it’s really beautiful there. After getting married I moved to Phoenix, Arizona and lived there for 10 years. I love it there and I am planning to move back there someday. I have two grown children, Samantha and Shawn. My husband Dave and I love taking motorcycle trips. We have been to Europe several times on motorcycle trips. We have bikes that we use stored in a barn in Wales. I love reading, scrapbooking, gardening, and spending time with my friends. I have a rescue dog named Fernando, he is a chihuahua mix. I did not rescue him, he rescued me! I really am grateful and blessed to be part of the Longwood family.
