Welcome Mr. Derek!
Posted on 01/15/2016

We are extremely fortunate to have been able to hire "Mr. Derek" as a new instructional assistant.

Derek is well known by the Columbus students as an expert KOB teacher, and has even coached many of our students on sports teams for the Mac Parks & Rec. His fondness and dedication to our students is rivaled only by their mutual feelings for him.

Mr. Derek engaged our fifth graders in a recent lunch recess activity. It was a little too rainy to be outside in the weather, but the photo shows that the kids didn't mind with Derek keeping them company.  He made amazing use of our covered area; the kids got lots of exercise and fresh air without getting drenched!
