The Kids Post - - Registry of Educators - DAVID YOUNG HEAD OF SCHOOL

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.”
