Betsy Young, Teacher: AP English Language and OnRamps/English

Welcome Parents and Students ~

This year I am teaching AP English Language and English II. Below is my class schedule, and soon here I will post the Syllabus for each class and my availability for student support or parent meetings outside of the class day. If you would like to get in touch with me, please email me at [email protected] 


If you are interested, I’ve provided here some information about me and my background in teaching:

After many years in marketing, mostly in the book publishing industry, I went back to graduate school to become a high-school English teacher. Within the month of May 2012, I graduated that program, got married, moved to Houston, and got a job in HISD. I have mostly taught AP English Language, but I have also taught English III, OnRamps, English I, and AP Literature. I also supervise our chapter of the National English Honor Society. Now in 2021, I am entering my sixth year at Memorial, and I truly love it here. The students are so friendly, fun, and smart; the faculty and staff are inspiring and supportive; and the leadership is exceptional! 

Here is a bit more personal information if you are interested: I majored in English and Communications at Penn, and I got my M.A.T. many years later at Rhode Island College. My husband is a history and Bible teacher and a baseball and football coach; together, we are big fans of the New England Patriots. My biggest obsession is college gymnastics, and UCLA is "my" team, although we both like LSU as well. I also love to read, bake, go to the beach, and spend time with our 5 (!) young grandchildren. I have lived all over the country, and I still feel like a New Englander in many ways. But I love the warmth--of the climate and the people--in Texas.
