Hello, my name is Helen Young.  I graduated from Salisbury State University in Maryland with my Bachelor's degree in Biology.  While at Salisbury, I specialized in estuarine science.  When I moved south to Alabama, I worked at Auburn University and continued my work in the fisheries department studying bacterial and viral diseases of freshwater fish.  When I moved to Georgia, I attended the University of West Georgia to obtain my teachers certification.


This is my 14th year at Villa Rica High School!  We are VR!  I actually started as a substitute teacher years ago and loved teaching so much that I attended University of West Georgia to obtain my certification.  I started out at VRHS teaching Environmental and Biology and am now teaching Anatomy and Forensics.  The students have been wonderful, teaching me new things as I continue to teach them each year.


I am married and have 3 wonderful kids.  I love teaching science but on my spare time I help out at youth group, scouts and science camp.  If you come to visit and can't find me, just look outside.  I may be working in the garden or going for a hike!
