With a commitment to advancing Christian education and the desire to reimagine educational practice, Bryan Young is in his third year as principal of Delta Christian School.
Bryan is a lifelong Richmondite where he attended Richmond Christian School and graduated from Steveston Secondary School. Bryan, Wendy and their son Rhys reside in the Steveston area where they appreciate bike rides along the dyke trail and access to a diverse selection of culinary options.
In recent years, Bryan has provided oversight to the Direct blended learning program at Traditional Learning Academy. As vice-principal, his energy has been directed towards the implementation of personalized and flexible learning options for K-12 students facilitated by online tools and educational technology. This program has pushed forward the ideas of the 21st century learner, reflecting the direction of BC’s new curriculum.
Believing that learning should be a lifelong pursuit, Bryan’s inquiring mind has led him to study applied Christian theology, marketing and public relations, online learning and technology, educational leadership, and elementary STEM education. As a teacher, Bryan’s specialization is in the area of middle school science, technology, engineering and math education. It is a common sight for students to be working with their hands in the classroom – tinkering and experimenting, while creating a controlled mess.
Valuing opportunities for international travel and cross-cultural experiences, the highlights of their journeys have taken them to China, Italy, Australia and their favourite relaxation destination in Hawaii. Bryan and Wendy have been involved with educational camps for displaced communities and youth leadership training in Cambodia as part of their outreach with their church community.
