  • Physical Education
  • Computers
  • Phonics

  My name is Cathy Young. My daughter and I have lived in Stoughton for over 15 years. We have family here and fondly now call Stoughton home. Before moving to Stoughton, I worked and taught in the St. Paul public school system and also for a Montessori school in Minnesota. I have degrees from both the University of Minnesota and UW-Whitewater. I’ve worked and taught at Martin Luther Christian School since 1997. I’ve worked in nearly every classroom in childcare both before and after school, and sometimes over the summer. During the school year I teach Junior Kindergarten here at Martin Luther. I really enjoy working with children. Every day brings something new when working in early childhood classrooms. The students learn so quickly in these early stages and love the adventure of school. My goal is to encourage this love of learning everyday by making my curriculum interesting and enjoyable. I couldn’t ask for more in a job!
