Degrees and Certifications:
Hello Mavericks! My name is Derek Dickerson and I am thrilled to be your friendly, neighborhood librarian. I became a librarian to share my love of reading and books with an entire campus while ensuring that my students have access to the books and resources they need to grow and develop into passionate, independent learners and readers. I received my bachelors in literature with a secondary degree in education and began my teaching career in Denton ISD where I taught English Language Arts and Reading to 6th grade for fourteen years. It was at this point that I completed my masters degree in Library Science, and joined the opening crew of Memorial! I am married and still currently live in Denton and have two bright and lively children who attend Memorial as well.
