3rd Grade

Hi my name is Jerry Young. I am the new 3rd Grade Homeroom teacher and I also teach 3rd - 5th grade Science and Social Studies.

I was born and raised in Southern California, but have recently discovered the beauty and serenity of Iowa. I am married with six wonderful children. I am a second - career teacher who is inspired to become an educator by my fourth grade teacher. In 2006 I left a sales job of 12 years to follow my bliss to become a teacher.

I enjoy spending time with my kids. I also enjoy tinkering with my 1900's farm house in New Virginia, Iowa.

I attended Lake Elsinore Union High School. I have completed my undergraduate work at California State University San Bernardino. I completed my graduate degree in Science and Mathematics Education through Walden University.

I came to Murray because I was looking for the opportunity to teach and be part of a community near my new home.
