The University School of Jackson is pleased to announce David Suber as the new Upper School Director. He will begin his new role on July 1, 2019. Mr. Suber is currently the Upper and Middle School Director of Lowcountry Preparatory School in Pawleys Island, SC.
Mr. Suber received his Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina and went on to attend Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina where he received his master’s in Secondary English Education.
“I am thrilled to welcome David to our USJ family,” says Head of School Stuart Hirstein. “David has already proven himself to be a strong leader and devoted educator. I am confident he will lead our Upper School students and faculty with kindness and a commitment to excellence.”
With 16 years of experience in education, Mr. Suber has served in many capacities including: English teacher, teacher mentor, assistant soccer coach, IB Coordinator, and most recently Middle/Upper School Director. He was also instrumental in integrating STEAM into the curriculum at Rock Hill High School.
Mr. Suber was a National Society of High School Scholars Educator of Distinction, Walmart Charlotte-area Teacher of the Year, member of United Way’s Men of York County, and an SCISA Master Teacher.
"From the beginning, it was apparent that I shared many of the same academic, philosophical, and pedagogical principles already in place at the University School of Jackson,” says Mr. Suber. “Recognizing that, the opportunity to join USJ as the Upper School Director was an easy one. Teaming up with the outstanding leadership already in place with Mr. Hirstein, Mr. Roe, and Dr. Dunn will make my transition to USJ and the Jackson community even easier."
