About Derek

For years I was an advocate of teaching students math in a way that helped them understand how it related to the world around them. Finally I got my chance as a 7th grade math teacher. Being in the classroom at a Title I school was much different than how I had imagined teaching. There were a myriad of discipline issues and administrative duties that made the job overwhelmingly time consuming.

I am glad to be back doing what I really enjoy - teaching. My experience in the classroom has helped me develop effective ways of teaching, as well as has motivated me to make a greater impact in the lives of the students that I reach. It is my goal to help improve each student's grades, understanding, and critical thinking skills.
