Mrs. Skyler Guin-Young - Kindergarten Teacher

Hello! I am so glad you are here!


My name is Skyler Guin-Young. I have been with the Chesterbrook family since 2017. I have been fortunate to work here in many different roles including beginning as a teacher’s assistant in Pre-K. I have also been a TA in Kindergarten, Second and Third Grade, before moving into the Art Teacher position, which I loved for two years. I chose to move into the position of lead Kindergarten teacher because I love the ability to build a sense of community among students while supporting their learning needs in a small environment. I have a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a masters degree from Wake Forest University, and I am currently a student at NC State where I am receiving a secondary masters in teaching. If you can’t tell, I really love school! And my hope is to instill my love of learning into your children, as well.

A Few Fun Facts About Me:

1. I married my husband in October of 2020. We were both born and raised right here in NC. 

2. We have a husky named Ava, a cat named Nadia, and a ball python named Koa.

3. In my free time, I love to paint, craft, and spend time outdoors.


Together, with my teacher assistant, Mrs. Kim Hancock, we will push your child to be as successful as they can be! Mrs. Hancock has been a part of our CBA family since 1986. She enjoys reading, incorporating art into academics, and supporting students with handwriting.

A Few Fun Facts about Mrs. Hancock:

1. She LOVES cats!

2. She loves nature!

3. She enjoys loving and taking care of all animals!


In partnership, Mrs. Hancock and I have a goal of making your child’s Kindergarten year MEMORABLE through reading stories, creating art, working in hands-on exploration, singing songs, and more!
