Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome to the 2018-19 School Year
Welocme to Mrs. Youngstrom's Awesome K-1 Combo! This will be my 23rd year teaching. I have taught kindergarten for 12 years and first grade for four. I grew up in Southern California, living in San Bernardino, Redlands, and Upland. I moved to Upland when I met my husband Eric. We have two beautiful daughters. Ella is entering junior high (oh my) and Lily is entering fourth. I have a Master’s degree in Reading and Language Arts. I have a Reading Specialist Credential and Administrative Credential. I love teaching!
This summer has been very busy. I enjoyed an unbelievable trip to Kern River with my daughter Ella. I learned to whitewater raft and paddle on a stand-up paddle board. We also hiked, kayaked and wall climbed. I spent some time in San Francisco with my high school friends. After that, I pretty much spent the summer painting sets, sewing costumes, and selling tickets at the two theater companies where my daughters perform.
When I am not teaching, you can find me hanging out with my daughters. We like to stay busy. Sometimes I feel like a taxi driver as I escort them to singing lessons, swim team practice, Girl Scouts and musical theater rehearsal. When I am not driving the girls around, I love to hike. My family is on a mission to visit all the National Parks!!!
