The journey that led David Young to join the TMS community as Head of School is one that speaks to a powerful alignment between his experiences and values. The son of Scottish parents working overseas, Young was born and grew up in Bangladesh before returning to Scotland as a young boy. His leadership in education has included schools in England and the Czech Republic, and he has also lived and volunteered in schools in Trinidad and Uganda. The common factor throughout has been that each school community has striven for excellence, both in learning and in the individualized teacher-student relationships.
The journey Young has had makes joining TMS particularly exciting. “To be a part of a school whose entire philosophy, from pre-school to Grade 12, is grounded on such powerful values, whose community captures the beautiful diversity of this city and in which striving for excellence is such a normal and joyful part of each day, is both humbling and inspiring," he says. "Just as important to me is the fact that our students have an authentic love of learning and aspire to become good people. TMS is a fun place to be.”
