Welcome to Ypsilanti Community Schools
Ford ELC Principal
Daniel Young joined Ford Early Learning Center in 2020, after serving the students of Detroit, Michigan for 18 years. He began his career as a music teacher and continued to serve as a lead teacher, assistant principal, and principal, respectively. He is excited to begin this new chapter in his life serving the Ypsilanti Community Schools in the capacity as the principal of Ford ELC.
Mr. Young was born and raised in Detroit and attended Wayne State University where he earned his Bachelor of Music, Master of Education, and Education Specialist degrees.
Throughout his career, Daniel has gained experiences and skills that has lead to more effective teachers, successful students, and engaged families, and he is excited to share his knowledge with the Ypsilanti community in hopes to collaborate for an even better educational community and experiences for all of our students, staff, and families.
Mr. Young believes that the number one factor in all successful students is their community believing in them. Therefore, if you believe they can, they will.
During his free time, Mr. Young enjoys spending time with family and writing music.
