About Mrs. Derr
Welcome to Mrs. Derr's class! I have been teaching in North Kitsap for many years, both at Pearson Elementary and Kingston Middle School. Previously I taught in Newburgh, Indiana, teaching 3rd, 7th and 8th grades.
In my spare time I am always on the go. I enjoy traveling and have the motto, "Have suitcase, will travel!" I love the outdoors and can often be found camping, hiking, beach combing and snow skiing. When the weather doesn't allow me too be outside I like to curl up with a good book in front of the fire. I am also frequently working on my scrapbooks since I always taking pictures!
My husband and I have two children, who keep us busy with all of their activities. My husband and I have been trained in Search and Rescue, which we did for years with our tracking/trailing dog, Shelby, who is now retired. Shelby now spends her days lounging at home with our Boxer puppy (Libby), two cats (Oreo and Snickers), fish (Frankie and Bubbles) and tortoise (Clover).
I am excited about the successful year ahead of us!
