About Mrs. Young


My name is Rachel Young. This is my ninth year teaching in Polk County. I was the 2020-2021 Teacher of the Year for LHMS. I was born and raised right here in Lakeland, FL. I graduated from Southeastern University with both my Bachelor of Science Degree and Master's Degree in Education. I am currently working on my Master's in Educational Leadership, in hopes of moving into administration. My passion is teaching. I have endorsements/certification in Gifted Education, Language Arts 5-9, Reading, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Elementary Education, ESOL, and ESE K-12. I enjoy spending time with my family, bowling, shopping, reading, and gardening. I have been married for seven years to my amazing and supportive husband and we have a cat named Bucky. I am looking forward to a great year!
