A Brief History of Mr. Derek
Originally, I hail from Stillwater, Minnesota. I graduated with my Master's degree from the University of Minnesota in Educational Psychology, and also hold Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and Philosophy. I worked for several years in a children's mental health facility before making the magical trek to Ketchikan. I enjoy a great many outdoor activities such as hiking, climbing, swimming and general adventuring. I also enjoy practicing yoga, reading, writing, music, food (cooking and eating), motorcycling, snowboarding, new experiences, and interacting with people.
Working with children is one of my greatest passions in life. It is truly my honor to be working at Fawn Mountain with such an experienced, compassionate, and cohesive school staff; in addition to an absolutely wonderful, spirited, and brilliant student body!
