Frank and Laura Young enrolled their children at Providence in its second year of existence. Their youngest child graduated in 2014, and their grandson, Roman, began pre-K the following year. Roman is the first child of a Providence student to be enrolled at Providence, thus initiating the second generation of students that we pray God will use to impact lives to the thousandth.
Laura first taught 5th grade, then 3rd at Providence, but since then has taught various levels of English and rhetoric. She currently serves as the Secondary Academic Dean in addition to her subject classes.
Laura believes that while it is incumbent upon all students to learn to think critically, it is imperative that Christian students learn to think not only critically, but biblically and to delight in God’s gift of language as a reflection of His image in us. After receiving her heavenly crown of glory, she plans on spending her first break from the angelic psalm-sing to meet for coffee with John Milton, C.S. Lewis, G.K. Chesterton, Charles Dickens, and hopefully, Shakespeare.
