Ms. J. Young, M.Ed.-MJHS 2017-2018 Teacher of the Year

This is my 18th year teaching.  I am certified in Social Studies, ESL, and 
Reading and Curriculum Instruction. I received my Bachelor's degree from 
Southeastern Louisiana University and Master's degree from Grand Canyon 
I have four wonderful children. Three attend school in St. Tammany parish and 
 my oldest child is a senior at LSU.  I have one sister who also teaches in 
this parish.  I enjoy teaching and look forward to helping your child learn 
about our wonderful state.

My Mission

My mission is to encourage, motivate, and ensure that all students receive a 
great education in Louisiana history as well as in life skills.  I believe in 
teaching tolerance so all students feel welcome and accepted in my class.  
There will be zero tolerance for teasing, bullying, swearing, or any form of 
negative disruption while in my class.  This class environment will be 
conducive to learning and a welcome place for every student who enters.
