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!
