Arnette Young - 8th  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to 8th Grade Homeroom 13!!!

My name is Arnette Young. I am a Highly Qualified Teacher that have taught at St. Catherine for over 10 years. It is my philosophy that all children can learn and the cooperation of the parents assure success.

Sixth grade is a difficult transition for some students. This year they have to learn their class schedule, learn to prepare for the different classes, and learn the policies and procedures for junior high. With your cooperation the transition will not be so difficult.

I look forward to having a fun filled learning experience with each student.
