Degrees and Certifications:
Mrs. Kerri Young
This is my 19th year teaching in Marion Unit #2, and I am thrilled to be one of the K-5 technology teachers! In the past, I have taught 4th & 5th grade reading, 8th grade language arts & literature, and 2nd grade. One common thread in all of these previous teaching experiences, is my love for technology and the ways it can enhance and enrich student learning. With the 1:1 environment of Marion Unit #2, I think there is no greater position that I can teach than starting our youngest learners on the road to responsible and productive technology usage!
Just a little more about me: I am a Class of 2000 graduate from Marion High School. I have been, and always will be, a Wildcat at heart. I have a Bachelors of Science degree from SIU-Carbondale, a Masters of Arts degree from McKendree University, and a Reading Teacher Endorsement from SIU-Carbondale. I live in Marion with my husband of 18 years, Graham, and our three sons - Braden (16), Jake (12), and Cooper (9). When I'm not at school or watching one of my boys in a sporting event, I enjoy camping, traveling, and reading.
I'm looking forward to an exciting year!
