Michelle Young gives back to her fellow teachers

Young understands the challenges of teaching a classroom of children thirsty for knowledge, but without the resources, many need to succeed. This is the reason why Bachelorette star Young decided to give back to the educators who not only give of their time in the classroom but of their own pockets to make sure each child has the tools necessary for success.

In a speech, Young toasted to all those who give themselves in the classroom, including teachers, principals, and support staff.

“You are the unsung heroes,” Young claimed.

“People don’t understand teachers, but I want you to know that I see you, I’m here with you,” she said.

“I ended filming The Bachelorette on a Friday. By the next Monday, I was back in my fifth-grade classroom,” Young admitted.

Young then told her fellow teachers that she had made available a room filled with whatever school supplies they needed, and they could take what they wanted to support themselves and their students.

Mike Johnson has the sweetest nickname for ‘The Bachelorette’ star

Fan-favorite and former Bachelorette contestant Mike Johnson commented on the video and shared a sweet nickname for Young in the post’s comments section.

Johnson was introduced to franchise fans in Season 15 of The Bachelorette. He later appeared on Season 6 of Bachelor in Paradise, and he now hosts a Bachelor Nation podcast, “Talking It Out with Bachelor Nation.” Johnson has never appeared on a series alongside Young.
