Mrs. Rebecca Young
Hello Dodd Dinos!
I am ecstatic to embark on my inaugural year within Wylie ISD at the wonderful Dodd Elementary! First and foremost, I graduated from Howard Payne University in 2014 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education. I also played soccer for the university's women's team. Sting 'Em Jackets! This will be my 8th year of educating young minds. I taught for two years as a 3rd-grade ELAR teacher, right up the road, in Princeton ISD. For the past 5 years, I taught at Holiman Elementary, in San Angelo ISD, as a 4th-grade ELAR teacher.
Educating is not just my profession, it is my PASSION! My ultimate mission is to be the students' facilitator and advocate in becoming the absolute best versions of themselves by fostering future-ready learners and citizens who are communicators, collaborators, creators, and critical thinkers. The Wylie Way is the structural backbone of my classroom which evokes a safe, engaging, purposeful, and positive learning environment for all children.
My hope is to be an affirmative ally in your child's educational journey! Together, we can cultivate progress and success.
