Mr. Elliott Young

Dear Students and Families,  

My name is Elliott Young! I’m so excited to join Hickory Ridge High's staff! This will be my first year here at Hickory Ridge and I could not be more excited! I will be teaching World History, American History I, Current Events, and Civics and Economics. 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 in it. I graduated from UNC-Charlotte, which is where I studied history and secondary education. During my student teaching, 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 with family and friends, always drinking coffee, or running at a local park. 

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 about teaching that I love is building relationships with students. Watching students grow throughout their high school career is the biggest reward of my career and I'm so glad I get to do it here at HRHS!

Please visit the AOHT link on our home page for more information and expectations about The Academy of Hospitality and Tourism, which I teach these awesome kiddos in World History and American History I. I am also thrilled to be a co-advisor for the HRHS' Dazzling Bulls! Please see our club page under the "organizations" tab to learn more! 


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

Looking forward to a great year, 

Mr. Young
