Degrees and Certifications:
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!
