Hello, my name is Tina Young, and I have been teaching at St. Leonard School since 2010. I graduated from Northeastern Illinois University with a Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education, Special Education in 2009. I also hold a Bachelors degree in Psychology. Prior to coming to St. Leonard, I worked for 13 years in a variety of programs for The Children Center of Cicero/Berwyn. My past experience includes working with infants and toddlers and their teen parents, the Illinois State Pre-K Program, and the Early Head Start Home Visiting Program.
I feel very excited and blessed to be here because St. Leonard has been my parish for the past 27 years. Both of my children attended and graduated from St. Leonard School. Go Lions! I am a proud member of the St. Leonard Garden Club. My favorite hobbies are fishing and kayaking. I am looking forward to a fantastic school year.
