Ms. Shannon Young

I am very happy to be a partner in your child's education!

I began teaching at New River Elementary in 1994. At New River, I taught 2nd and 3rd grade. I went to Anthem Elementary in 1999 , where I taught 3rd grade. Then I moved to Sunrise, where I taught 2nd grade for a year and the following years I taught 3rd grade. In 2005, I taught 4th grade at Desert Mountain . From 2006 to 2013, I had the opportunity to teach 1st grade. During the fall of 2013, I became an Academic Facilitator. In this position, I coached, trained and mentored kindergarten-third grade teachers in the Boulder Creek Region.  3 years ago, I had the opportunity to teach kindergarten and for the last 2 years I have taught 2nd grade.

I currently have 2 Masters of Education. The first degree is in Elementary Education. The second degree is in Counseling. In 2006, I was honored by being selected as a Deer Valley Teacher of the Year. My daughter , Mikayla, is 15 and is a freshman at Boulder Creek. Tanner, my son, is 13 and is in 7th grade at Desert Mountain.. For fun, I love to spend time with my children. I love to read, digital scrapbook, hike and scuba dive.

I am very excited to be at New River. It is a wonderful place to spend my days with amazing children, fabulous families and an amazing staff. I am looking forward to working with our children and watching them grow socially and academically throughout the school year.
