Mrs. Young

Hello and welcome to second grade!!! My name is Natalie Young and I am SO excited to be joining the Arcola family this year. This will be my 5th year teaching second grade. I graduated from James Madison University (Go Dukes!) with my Bachelor's in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies and Master's in Elementary Education. My goal as an educator is to develop meaningful connections, instill self-confidence, and foster social and academic growth in my students. My husband and I currently live in Gainesville with our 2 cats, Mae and Olive. I enjoy snowboarding, wake surfing at Lake Anna, fishing, and traveling! Additionally, I love spending time with family and friends and being a coach at Orangetheory Fitness. Feel free to reach me at

Let's have a fabulous year in second grade!!!
