Middle School

Stephanie Young


Stephanie Young is beginning her eighth year teaching Language Arts at Walden.  She graduated from Brigham Young University in 2006 with a bachelor's degree in English Education and immediately looked for a job that was different from the mainstream teaching of the exact same thing, six times a day.  After interviewing with Walden, she knew she'd found a place to call home.  

Stephanie is a lover of almost any book, both fiction and non-fiction, but mostly enjoys fantasy and science fiction.  In her spare time, she also enjoys writing, cooking, baking and playing with her two young children, Paisley and Parker.  

Stephanie, her husband, Rhett, Paisley and Parker, moved around the country from 2013-2017. They landed in New York, Texas, Florida, and New Mexico before finally ending up back in Utah.  The family is thrilled to be back in Utah so the kids can attend Walden and Stephanie can be back working with Middle School!  Stephanie loves the uniqueness of Walden, it's smaller class sizes and the ability it has to offer individualized education to all it's students.  She hopes to help all students find a safe place at Walden.
