My name is Sherri Young. I am married to Mark Young, the Alternative Education teacher in Marlow. We have been married for 31 years. We have two children, a daughter, Codi Young, who is an RN at Duncan Regional Hospital in the ER. Codi is returning to school to be a Nurse Practitioner, she is engaged and will be married in May. My son, Seth Young, recently graduated from Southeastern State University with a degree in Occupational & Industrial Safety. I graduated in 1992 from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas. I am a ATM fan!!! Sorry
My teaching career began in a very small school in Palo Pinto, Tx., where I taught first grade for seven years. Since, I built and started a private Pre-School, Kiddie Kollege. I taught at Kiddie Kollege for 6 years before moving to Oklahoma. My husband and I opened the first Chicken Express in the state of Oklahoma. After five years I got out of the business world and began teaching in Marlow as a third grade teacher in 2009. The next year I was asked to teach first grade and did so for 4 years. The past 6 years I have taught Pre-K, and have to say this is the age for me! I love teaching the younger children. It is my job to instill in these little guys that school is fun. I think that if I can help them learn to love school at the earliest age that it will stick with them for a lifetime.
After taking a brief pause from teaching, I quickly learned that roads take us to many different places and different directions, but when you love what you do, you will return. I hope in this journey of life, the children I teach will learn something more precious than reading, math or spelling. I hope they learn what it means to be an Outlaw and that they are.......loved.
Lou Ann Janda is our aide. She is my right hand and brain most of the time. The kids call her Mrs. Lou.
LouAnn Janda is my aide, and I have to say that she keeps our classroom running effeciently! She is wonderful and I could not do my job without her. Not only is she the best aide ever, she is my friend.
Together, we will have an amazing year! In spite of COVID 19
