Chrissy Young graduated from Fairfield University in 2007 with a BA in Psychology and a minor in Sociology. She then joined Teach for America and spent three wonderful years teaching 2nd and 3rd grade in New Orleans. Missing her native Brooklyn, Chrissy moved back to New York and joined the PAVE team as an Intervention Specialist. Upon earning her MSEd in Literacy from Hunter College, Chrissy decided to go back to the classroom to share her love of reading and writing with 2nd graders. This year, Chrissy is applying her love of literacy to the broader school as an ELA Curriculum Specialist.
