Lela Ling, Junior School Science Teacher

What impresses you most about the students at York House School?
The students at YHS impress me with their enthusiastic and curious spirit always ready to question, take risks along with a willingness to develop a new perspective. I’m inspired each day by their spirit and it has helped me to continue to be a lifelong learner.

What impresses you about our community overall?
It’s a privilege to be both a parent (Grace ’08) and a teacher at this school. I’m most impressed by the genuine support that the parents give to their daughters’ teachers and the rest of the YHS staff. In turn, I work with teachers who are dedicated in their profession instilling their love for learning as well as the school’s long-held traditions that reflect our school’s motto, ‘Not for Ourselves Alone.’ I know first hand that the girls at YHS are receiving an excellent education, developing lifelong friendships and will face the future with confidence.

What are you most looking forward to at York House in the coming months?
What I look forward to in the coming months at YHS is really the same thing since my daughter was a young student at this school. It’s the beginning of the track and field season and I love working with our excellent coaches to help each young athlete perform their best. Go Tigers!

What is something that people might not know about you that you would like to share?
My favourite thing about Vancouver is the Pacific Spirit Park. I love running on the trails. Sometimes you are even lucky enough to see an owl or even a coyote.
