My name is Ashley L. Young and I am seasoned teacher in my first year in the Madison School District. Currently I teach U.S. History and Advanced Placement U.S. History at Ridgeland High School. I have taught for 10 years in districts around Mississippi. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s in Arts in Sciences from Mississippi State University. I received a Master’s degree in Teaching also from Mississippi State University. I have sponsored and led student groups which would include: Drama Club, French Society, and Cheer. I am personally excited and grateful to be teaching in the Ridgeland Zone, Titan Country! I hope to use my personal experience and skills to help students to become life-long learners and true historians. I also hope to build lasting successful relationships to strengthen the Ridgeland community.
