As elementary students returned from the holiday break on Wednesday, January 2, they were greeted by a new face, Elementary Principal Renee Young. Young, who has been an educator for 22 year, was appointed as principal at the Tuesday, November 13 Board of Education meeting.
“I am very excited to be joining the team here in Corinth,” said Young. “I am looking forward to joining this caring and supportive community, and working closely with families and staff.”
Young previously worked for Shenendehowa Central Schools, where she spent the last three and a half years serving as an administrator in the special education department. Before her time as an administrator, Young spent a year as a literacy coach and 18 years as an elementary classroom teacher, where she taught first, second and fourth grade.
Though becoming a part of the Corinth community is something Young is very much looking forward to, she is even more excited to be able to work with Corinth students.
“The students are a major part of why I chose to become an educator,” said Young. “It is an amazing experience to be able to support them as their excitement for learning develops.”
Young currently resides not that far from Corinth in Wilton, NY, where she grew up, and says she is also very excited to be working closer to home near her husband and two children. She earned her bachelor’s in early childhood and childhood education from the College of Saint Rose and her master’s in reading from the University at Albany. Additionally, Young has earned a certificate of advanced study and leadership from the College of Saint Rose.
