A head shot of Joshua Young

My name is Joshua Young. This is my 5th year teaching, as well as, my 5th year at McConnell teaching fifth grade. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Middle Grades Education from the University of Tennessee Chattanooga and an Associate’s Degree in Computer Networking from Dalton State College. 

I greatly enjoy teaching fifth grade here at McConnell. This age brings so many interesting and exciting characteristics and dynamics to a classroom, and I fit right in! I try to keep my classroom environment interesting and interactive. I feel the most comfortable when I can just be myself and I want my students to feel the same way. That is the atmosphere I try to create for my students. A safe place where they can be themselves and grow as they learn. 

I am originally from North Georgia (Go Dawgs!), but I now live in Soddy Daisy with my wife Caroline, our daughter CallieGrace, and our dog Junebug. It's great to be a part of the McConnell family!
