Brooke Young was born and raised in Southern California. After high school, she headed up to Santa Cruz to attend UCSC. Brooke wanted to use all of the interesting things she learned to inspire kids to tell stories, document important ideas and feel empowered. That’s when she ended up at High Tech Middle first working as an Academic Coach. This year Brooke is teaching sixth grade Math/Science. This will be Brooke’s 8th year working at HTM and her 7th year teaching. She is absolutely thrilled that she has been given the opportunity to work with all the amazing students at High Tech Middle. In her free time, Brooke loves to travel, hike, and spend time with her family. She has had the opportunity to visit many amazing places like Budapest and Japan. On the weekends you’ll probably find her hiking with friends, playing with her dog, Fan, or going on adventures with her nieces and nephew.
