Mr. Elliott Young

Dear Students and Families,  

My name is Elliott Young! I’m so excited to be at Hickory Ridge. This is my 3rd year here at The Ridge. In the past, I have taught World History, American History I and II, Current Events, & Civics and Economics. This year, I will be teaching primarily World History. One of my biggest passions is teaching history. This provides students with better decision-making skills, a better understanding of societal changes and patterns, and a clearer sense of how the world operates and why it chooses to do so. Another aspect of teaching that I love is building relationships with students. Watching students grow throughout their high school career is the most rewarding part of my career!

I grew up in Cabarrus County and graduated from this awesome school district. I loved it so much, I knew that I wanted to come back and teach! I graduated from UNC-Charlotte, which is where I studied history and secondary education. During my time at UNCC, I was named the 2020 Student Teacher of the Year by UNC-Charlotte’s College of Education. When I’m not at school, you can find me hanging out with family and friends, always drinking coffee, or running at a local park. 

If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to email me!  

Looking forward to a great year, 

Mr. Young
