Principal Michael YoungHuachuca City Elementary would like to welcome our new principal Mr. Michael Young! Here are some of the highlights of his career. We encourage you to read his biography in its entirety to get to know him better.

Mr. Michael Young is a southern Arizona native, born in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico and raised in Patagonia, Arizona. Michael attended elementary through high school at Patagonia School Districts. He holds an associate of liberal arts through Pima Community College, bachelor of science degree in elementary education and special education from Northern Arizona University, and a masters degree in educational leadership also from NAU.

Michael began his teaching career 1998 at Patagonia School District, and during the summer of 2000 he started teaching in the Nogales Unified School District. Michael served NUSD as a science teacher and science department chairperson at Desert Shadows Middle School until 2004. During his teaching career, he was selected as the Desert Shadows Teacher of the Year during the 2002-2003 school year and was awarded the N.U.S.D. #1 Jackie Scott Ambassador of Excellence Award/N.U.S.D. Teacher of the Year at the beginning of the 2003-2004 school year. Michael served as the dean of students for half a year while attaining credentials through the Arizona Department of Education as a principal.

The following school year he was selected the assistant principal of Desert Shadows Middle School. Michael then further challenged his career as the principal of A.J. Mitchell Elementary School from July 2007 to June 2012 when he felt he was called for another challenge to give his services to another local community and such selected Huachuca City School.

Michael joined the Tombstone Unified School District #1 in August 2012 as a sixth grade teacher and during the summer of 2013 he was selected as the interim principal for the 2013-2014 school year. He holds high expectation for all his students, teachers, and staff to ensure students are safe and successful in the 21st century. He has set some personal goals to achieve while serving at Huachuca City School which include but not limited to as described at the June 27, 2013 T.U.S.D. #1 Governing Board Meeting.

  1. Improving academic success by working together as a team and using data driven information to seek out the students in need of assistance and making accommodations for them as deemed appropriate through the RTI process.
  2. To improve collaboration among the staff and himself to insure school wide improvement
  3. To improve communication between parents and school staff

Michael has an open door policy for the families he serves and wishes to build upon the relationship of the community members he serves. Please stop in some time and meet Mr. Young whenever you get some time while visiting Huachuca City. He truly looks forward to a great school year!

A Message from Your Child

Dear Mom or Dad,

Help me to get to school every day. And help me to be on time. Answer notes, telephone calls, and messages from school. Ask me daily what new things I learned in school. Help me feel good about myself. Teach me how to be caring and understanding and teach me good manners. Help me to realize how important school is to my future by supporting the school.

Thanks for helping me succeed!
