Heather B. Young

This is my 9th year at Clayton Middle School. I graduated from Mount Olive College with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Music: Voice Concentration. I also graduated from Wayne Community College with an Associate in Applied Science: Medical Assisting. East Carolina University is where I obtained my teaching licensure in Middle Grades English/Language Arts.


This year I will begin the adventure of teaching 8th grade at CMS.  In my previous years here, I taught 6th grade (2017-2021) and before that, 7th grade (2013-2017).  I have had the honor of leading the Show Choir (Showcase of Stars) since 2014-2015 and look forward to continuing with that this year. I also serve as the Beta Club sponsor. I look forward to expanding and growing the Beta Club this year and working with the students involved. I have been privileged to serve as an Eagle Council sponsor and Box Tops for Education Coordinator. I love to see students get involved in their school and community and working with these organizations has allowed me to fulfill that passion in various ways!


I grew up in a tiny corner of Duplin County called Fountaintown, but I have lived in Wayne County for many years. I currently live in Goldsboro with my husband Jason, who works for the technology division of JCPS.


In my “free” time I enjoy playing paintball, reading, and singing with the Praise and Worship team. I enjoy watching various sports, including soccer and Quidditch. I enjoy Harry Potter, Star Wars, PEANUTS, various video games, classic cars, and spending time with family and friends.


I look forward to working with you this year!
