Bio

Derick has worked at the Gatton Academy since the fall of 2008.  His work involves connecting students to mentored research projects, motivating students to reach for summer internship and research positions, and helping students connect their accumulated experiences to appropriate conferences and scientific meetings, scholarships, and competitions.

Inspired by his own experiences abroad as a student, Derick organizes and plans study abroad experiences for Gatton Academy students annually to Costa Rica for ecological field research and to England for literature studies.  Additionally, he coordinates the school’s STEM + Critical Language learning tracks in Arabic and Chinese.

He has a BA in English, an MAE in Student Affairs in Higher Education, a graduate certificate in International Student Services, and recently completed an MA in English.  In his thesis, he wrote on matters of family, his father’s early onset Alzheimer’s disease, and the Kentucky experience in a series of creative non-fiction essays. Currently, Derick is pursuing a Doctorate in Educational Leadership with a concentration in Postsecondary Leadership at Western Kentucky University.
