I graduated from Delta State University in 1994 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education.


I have 21 years of experience teaching in Desoto County Schools. I have taught both the kindergarten and pre-first grades.


I am from Clarksdale, Mississippi.  I have been married to Chris Young for 25 years and we have 18 year old twin daughters named Haley and Hannah.  We are members of New Prospect Baptist Church in Olive Branch.



Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him,  and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
