Marilyn Yung

Middle School Language Arts Teacher

I began teaching six years ago at the age of 45, after completing a Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Missouri State University. This is my seventh year teaching Language Arts and I love it. My three abiding interests: incorporating a study of real-world events, issues, and people into Language Arts instruction, 2) providing authentic writing experiences, and 3) seeing my students become published writers!
