Miss Young's 2nd Grade Class!
Welcome to our class website! This is a great place for you to find out what is going on in our classroom, Pleasant Hill school and additional links that can help your child at home!
This is my seventh year at Pleasant Hill Elementary and my fifth year teaching second grade. I graduated from Drake University in 2009 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with a focus on Reading. In 2013, I completed my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction! I've known I wanted to be a teacher since I was 5 years old. I absolutely love teaching, learning and working with kids. My classroom is centered around learning and laughing, we love to have fun as we explore new concepts and learn new skills.
I'm originally from Chicago, Illinois but am really enjoying living in Des Moines. My family consists of my parents, an older brother and me. In June of 2014, I adopted a puppy named Julius from the AHeinz57 shelter. He is spoiled rotten :) As much as I love Iowa, I do miss my family and of course, Chicago's amazing food! In my free time, I enjoy running, working out, and reading. I also love football and am a huge Chicago Bears fan!
