Hi there- my name is Amy Young, and I teach Reading and English/Language Arts at Prairie Star Middle School. I am beginning my 23rd year of teaching in the Blue Valley School District. I taught my first two years at Blue Valley Middle before moving to Prairie Star when it opened in 1996. I then have been at this fabulous school for the past 20 years!
My husband's name is Scott, and we have two daughters. Kylie is 17 and a senior at Blue Valley Northwest. Katelyn is 14 and is a freshman. We also have a 10 year old Maltipoo named Max.
For my undergraduate work, I attended KU and obtained my master's degree from there as well. Because my husband is a huge Sooners fan, we have many friendly rivalries in our household! In my spare time, you can usually find me at the ball park or in the gym attending my daughters' sports games, and I am involved in a book club outside of school.
I look forward to the upcoming school year, and I'm excited to help the students continue on their path to success!
