meet Kate Young
Ms. Kate Young is an English teacher of twenty years and a resident of Fishers. She is married and has two young boys, ages seven and eleven, as well as a rambunctious puppy. She attended Wittenberg University, where she double-majored in English and Studio Art. During her junior year, she was able to travel to Italy, where she learned how to paint in an Etruscan walled-in city. Kate went on to earn her Master of Science in Education degree from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. She worked at North Central High School, in Indianapolis, for twelve years, and has been teaching at Fishers High School for the last three. Kate has been involved in equity work in and around Fishers for years, but the work truly came alive for her when she participated in a Racial Dialogue Circle three years ago. RECN was born from an action step of that RDC. Since then, Kate has led her own RDC with a fellow RECN leadership team member and helped facilitate several “RECNing with Whiteness” training alongside members of Indy SURJ (Showing Up for Racial Justice). She looks forward to continuing the ever-important equity work in and around Fishers.
