Adam Young is a competitive thistle sailor, outdoor enthusiast, and devoted family man. Adam was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama. He graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Physical Education from the University of Alabama at Birmingham and has taught in private Montessori schools for the last 13 years. His approach to Physical Education is to motivate each child to participate in a variety of activities with the goal of them finding ways to stay healthy, to have fun, and to form the habit of life-long physical activity. He models life-long exercise for his students by actively participating with his students as he teaches games, outdoor exploration, and traditional sports. He is trained in low ropes course/team building exercises, is a US Sailing certified coach, and has coordinated the founding of several community gardens. Adam married his high school sweetheart, Erica, and they have two daughters, Eden and Alice, both of whom attend St. Andrew’s. Adam and his family moved to Savannah in June ’15 for his wife to continue her medical training as a Family Medicine Resident Physician at Memorial Health University Medical Center. They chose to relocate for this program because it offers a certification in Integrative Medicine that will prepare Erica for a medical practice centered around holistic, mind, body, and spirit medicine. Outside of school, his interests include road trips, sailing regattas, National Parks, good music, learning to cook healthy meals, and hanging out with his family.
