Meet our Leaders.
Head of School
Thaddeus (Tad) B. Bird became Head of School of All Saints' Episcopal School of Fort Worth in July 1998. Episcopal education has been at the heart of his life's work, as witnessed through his efforts in the classroom as a teacher, a coach, and lead administrator, where he deals with such issues as day-to-day operations, strategic long-range planning, accreditation, faculty compensation and evaluation, curriculum development, and fundraising. Previous positions include Headmaster of The Trinity School of Texas in Longview, Texas, Head of Upper School and Dean of Students for St. Stephen’s Episcopal School in Austin, Texas and Associate Admission Director for Christchurch School in Christchurch, Virginia.
Dr. Bird holds Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees from Austin College and a D.Min. in Educational Leadership from Virginia Theological Seminary. He was a 2001 Klingenstein Visiting Fellow at Teachers College, Columbia University. Other leadership and volunteer offerings have included service as a Board Member of St. Stephen's Episcopal School, past Board Member and President of the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools, and service on the Standards and Membership Committees for the Independent Schools Association of the Southwest. Dr. Bird is a current Board member for the Episcopal Church Foundation and Hope Farm, as well as a Lector and Lay Eucharist Minister with All Saints' Episcopal School and Church.
Board of Trustees
The Board delegates all executive functions to the Head of School, who within the context of policy, selects the curriculum, faculty and teaching methods for the school, determines the activities of the school, both curricular and extra-curricular, and establishes procedures to be followed. The Board carries out all professional relationships with school employees through the Head of School. It formulates regulations regarding the use of the school plant, has full responsibility for financing the educational program, provides for periodic audit of all financial transactions, and authorizes the preparation of an annual budget.
