Christie McMahon - Principal

        Greetings Wildcat family!  I am Christie McMahon and I am privileged to serve as W.A. Young Elementary’s new principal.  I am very excited about the opportunity to join the Wildcat team and I look forward to working with teachers, parents and community members to create the best learning environment for our students.

I have proudly served Burke County Public Schools for the past fourteen years with my career beginning in the classroom. I have had the opportunity to teach third, fourth and fifth grades. My service as a school administrator has given me the opportunity to work at four different schools-- experiencing elementary and middle school levels. Most importantly, I am a wife and a mother of three. I understand first hand the importance of family and the valuable relationship between school and home.

My experiences working with children have significantly impacted my core beliefs on how students learn best. I believe every student who walks through our doors has the potential to grow. I believe labels should not limit children with a lack of educational success. Most importantly, I believe that all students have purpose and value.

Please let me know how I can be of support to your child and family. Please feel free to contact me by phone or email. If I am out of my office, please leave a message and I will return calls at my earliest opportunity. A great deal of my day will be spent in classrooms, participating in the wonderful things that are going on in our school.

I look forward to serving the community of W. A. Young Elementary and I thank you for your continued support of our school.
