Mr. Derek Johnson

Dear Students, Parents, Staff, and Friends:

I am beyond excited to be joining the York Road Family!  This year marks my seventeenth year of service to Rock Hill Schools.  I began my career in 2003 as a special education instructional assistant before earning my teaching certificate through the Program of Alternative Certification for Educators (PACE).  Since then I have worked as a special education teacher, a Reading Recovery teacher, and a district literacy coach.  I hold degrees in both Psychology and Educational Leadership.

It is my sincere pleasure and privilege to serve as your new assistant principal, and I cannot wait to begin what will surely be a great year for our students and staff!


Derek Johnson
