Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to Highland Park Senior! I am Melissa Young! I have had the opportunity to teach special education at Highland Park Senior since 2003.
The courses I teach are Skills for College and Career, US Government, Reading and Transition Skills. My courses are designed to both cover the subject area as well as address the individual academic and transition needs outlined in my student's Individual Education Plans.
I have my masters degree in special education and hold teaching licenses for special education, autism spectrum disorder as well as art education.
Besides teaching, I really enjoy being artsy, gardening and spending time with my two children and two dogs!
