Mr. Derickson comes to Carson Middle School after three years as an assistant principal at Fountain-Fort Carson High School. He is most proud of his 18 years as a social studies teacher and many years as a soccer coach. Mr. Derickson is a passionate educator whose love for learning extends far beyond the school house walls! Your students may refer to Mr. Derickson as the Paper Plate Assistant Principal as he wears a paper plate on his chest as a way to spread positive messages and to connect with students. Mr. Derickson is truly excited to be an Eagle as he is inspired by the rewards and challenges of serving our Army families.
A husband of twenty years, and the father of three teenagers, he understands both the power of a first class education, along with the need to help students find their place in the world and community. It is Mr. Derickson’s hope that he will get to know each student and family in the Eagle community so he can assist in this journey.
