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!

It is Mr. Dericksons' hope that he will get to know each student and family in the Eagle community so he can assist in this journey.
