McDonald Elementary | Special Education
Hello! My name is Tracey Young, and I am a special education teacher for both McDonald and Lincoln Elementary Schools. I graduated from Emporia State University, in Kansas, with a Bachelor of Science in Education. I taught ninth and seventh grade resource in Kansas, and have been teaching K-5 here in North Platte since 2013.
I am married to Larry Young, who is the General Manager for Sodexo, Inc. We have three daughters, Emma, Rachel, and Molly, who all attend school in the North Platte school district.
I believe that my role as a resource teacher with North Platte Public Schools, is to ensure the students I serve are actively engaged in learning in the classroom, using strategies and techniques that provide success for the individual student.
The mission of NPPSD is to improve student success by building professional capacity with teachers and principals; developing and implementing systemic and systematic processes that impact the teaching and learning in every classroom; and planning, developing, and implementing programs that prepare students for the next phase of life.
