Terry Young, 7th/8th Grades - Math & Social Studies
Mr. Terry Young, winner of a 2004 Herbst Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence, has been teaching seventh and eighth graders at Kittredge for some time now, this being his 45th year at Kittredge! He is the 8th grade homeroom teacher and teaches math and social studies to both the 7th and 8th grades. A native of Philadelphia, he received both his BS in Secondary Education and his teaching credential at Temple University, and his MA in Secondary and Post-secondary Education at San Francisco State University.
While Mr. Young enjoys exploring the mathematical world with his students, his real passion is introducing them to the world of politics and government through daily discussions of current world events.
Mr. Young sits on the Board of Directors of the National Independent Private Schools Association (NIPSA), where he currently serves as Western Region Vice President for Accreditation. He is also Kittredge School’s representative to the Bay Area Independent Schools High School Placement Counselors organization, which he helps coordinate. His record of getting students into San Francisco’s best high schools speaks for itself.
