Bio

Hello there! My name is Becky Young, and I LOVE teaching at Battlefield Elementary. At BES, I have taught in grades 3, 4, and 5. I have called this school "home" for 19 years, and I hope to call it that for many more. 

As a teacher, I often find it hard to leave my job at the door. I tend to spend some of my free time self-reflecting on how I can do things differently to engage all my learners in the classroom for their best self everyday.  I also spend my free time reading books for both furthering my knowledge and for fun. Using what I learned from my Scooby-Doo TV watching days as a kid, I still try to solve mysteries...only I read them now. I also enjoy spending time doing yardwork, outdoor activities, and singing in the car with my kids. Sometimes off-key...and on purpose! :0)

What makes me qualified to work with your child? Some people want to know what degrees I hold. I have 4 degrees in Education: Associates, Bachelors, Masters, and my Specialists. I also have endorsements added to my degrees. I have an ESOL, Math, and Academic Coaching endorsement. At some point in time my goal is to get my Doctorate or certified to teach anywhere in the United States. I love learning, and I would be a full time student if I could. 

Qualifications are more than what papers you have and what is written on them. It is how you feel about what you have chosen to do...and I cannot see myself doing anything else. I have known since I was a third grader myself that this is what I have wanted to do with my life. My teachers believed in me when I needed it. I want other children to have the same in their life. 

I warmly welcome you to BES. There is nothing greater than the gift of education. It takes you places!
