Mrs. Young

Welcome families! 

My name is Jessica Young and I am thrilled to be your child's first grade teacher at Baker Elementary School. 

I grew up in a big family, here, in western Pennsylvania, and I have always loved being surrounded by children. Long before graduating from Frazier High School in Perryopolis, I knew that I wanted to become an early childhood education teacher.  I attended California University of Pennsylvania where I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education.  I also have certifications as a Reading Specialist and English as a Second Language.

After graduating college, I taught for four years with Montgomery County Public Schools in Rockville, Maryland.  I spent three years teaching first grade and one year teaching kindergarten there. 

Now, I am so happy and grateful to be back in Pennsylvania, where I can continue my rewarding career as an educator here with the Upper St. Clair School District. During my first year with the district, I taught kindergarten at both Eisenhower and Baker Elementary School.  Now, I am thrilled to be in the first grade classroom once again! 

Thank you for the opportunity to teach your child and sharing them with me.  As a mother myself, I promise to nuture them and help them grow just as I would my own. I know that it is going to be a great school year, and I look forward to working with all of you!
