The above picture is Cal Young Middle School as I knew it as a student. I spent 3 years as a Cay Young Pioneer. I loved Cal Young! I loved my friends, I loved sharing a locker with Brittany Saleeby, I loved the crazy long hallway, but I think I loved band most of all. Band was cool at Cal Young. I know, that doesn’t really make sense. But, for real, all the cool kids did band. This was mostly because of our awesome director, Chet Peterson. We got to play really fun songs (like the Jurassic Park and nightly news themes!) and marched in parades. We even did cool formations and stuff. We were pretty much awesome.
This photo is of Cal Young as I knew it as a student-teacher. They tore down the old building and built an amazing new building a few years ago. Last fall I was super lucky to do my student teaching at CY. It was so much fun to be (sort of) back at Cal Young! It didn’t feel like the same school, but there were still some of the same teachers. I would love, love, love to get a job at Cal Young in the future! The kids are great, the principal is wonderful and the staff is amazing!
I am a lucky girl to have gone to CY and to have taught at CY!
