Grades 1 & 2 - Mr. Young
Welcome to the homepage for our Classroom! My name is Tommy Young and I have been teaching at the Waitsfield School since 2000. Prior to joining the Waitsfield Staff, I taught two years in the Commonwealth of the Marianas Islands (on the island of Saipan) and 1 year at Thatcher Brook Elementary School.
I am married to Angela Young and have two daughters named Julianne and Abigail. Julianne is entering 11th Grade and Abby is starting 8th.
My classroom is based upon a cooperative approach, where the room is developed with all of the students needs in mind. From our classroom rules to the differentiation of instruction, each aspect is carefully crafted with your child's needs in mind. I hope you enjoy looking around my page and find the information useful.
Mr. Young's Blog
This year's science themes will be:
Reading: Read for 20-30 minutes a night (M-Th), Weekend Reading is encouraged but is optional.
Weekly News: Your child will bring home a Weekly News Journal at the end of each week. It will be a short entry about his/her week. You are asked to read it with them and respond over the weekend. We will read your responses on Monday morning.
