MS Director Letter: March 17
Posted 03/17/2017 10:00AM

Good Day Middle School Parents,

I wanted to take a moment to share some bittersweet news with you. Tim Liu and his wife Lisa Dai will be departing Greensboro Day School and heading for New Haven, CT. Tim has been selected as the Asia Program Manager for the Young Yale Global Scholars Program. Tim has had a powerful impact on our campus not only as the foundation of the Mandarin Chinese Program, but in the way he embraced all members of the Greensboro Day School community.

In Tim’s Words:

Dear GDS Community,

After two incredible years in Greensboro, Lisa and I find ourselves at the start of a new journey. I have accepted a job as the Asia Program Manager for the Yale Young Global Scholars program and we will be moving to New Haven, CT in June.  

Lisa and I are thankful for having had the opportunity to help develop the Chinese program at Greensboro Day School. In two short years Greensboro Day School has built a strong foundation for students to study Chinese from Bitty Bengals to their Senior Year. There is much work left to be done, but the strength of the program has always been in the trust and confidence that you impart every day. We know that the overwhelming support from students, parents, teachers, and administrators alike will continue to push the Chinese program forward.

The Greensboro Day School community has undoubtedly been the highlight of our time here. The unforgettable experience of being a part of a kind and caring community in which every member is working towards a common mission, and the deep ties we have built with you all will remain with us for the rest of our lives. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it all.

Two years ago Greensboro Day School launched a pilot program to develop a Mandarin Chinese program.  At this time we are committed to finding a full-time faculty member to continue to build on the foundations that Tim has developed.  I have such great faith in and appreciation for our thorough hiring process. We consider the needs of our students and the ability to provide a rigorous academic program and a classroom environment filled with trust, relationship and a spirit of inquiry.  Similar to the Division Director search, we form committees that review resumes, conduct interviews and invite teachers to campus to learn about GDS and teach a demonstration lesson. We have already begun the process of inviting candidates to campus, and we look forward to communicating with you when a decision is made.

If you have questions about this process, please feel free to reach out to me or Tommy Webb.  We have already begun the process of inviting candidates to campus to teach classes.  Please join us in wishing Tim and Lisa well on their move north.

All the best for a restful and relaxing Spring Break!

“The world is never saved by grand gestures, but by the accumulation of gentle, soft, almost invisible acts of compassion every day.” Chris Abani
