Mr. Derreck Hert

Hello there! My name is Mr. Hert. I was born in San Diego, California but have moved all over the United States including Hawaii, Alaska, Texas, Alabama, Florida, Virginia, and more. My love of teaching began at the high school level with group teaching and peer tutoring. It developed further in college where I taught as a P.A.S.S. (Peer Assisted Study Session) leader, private tutor, athletic tutor, and teaching assistant. I had the opportunity to teach various courses, some of which included general chemistry, nursing chemistry, human physiology, human biomechanics, and exercise physiology. I received my Bachelor's and Master's degrees from James Madison University and was an adjunct professor before transitioning to 7th grade life sciences. In my free time, you'll find me being a huge nerd with board games, movies, art, video games, along with spending time with my fluffy husky. Additionally, I enjoy reading, writing, playing sports, and exploring scientific concepts! I enjoy teaching science from a real world, hands-on-application perspective and will continually challenge students to delve deeper and learn more. I am honored and incredibly excited to get to know you all this upcoming year!
