Welcome to 4th Grade!

My name is Mr. Jeremy Young and I am thrilled that I get to be your child’s teacher this year! I’m looking forward to an amazing year and getting a chance to see everyone grow and reach their potential.

This is my 6th year teaching and my 2nd here at Bowling Green. Previously I taught in Spotsylvania and in Phoenix, AZ.

I am married and have 3 wonderful kids and live in Ashland. I am originally from Wisconsin and am a huge Green Bay Packer fan.

Again, I am so excited to be your teacher and am ready for a wonderful school year.
