Degrees and Certifications:
Physical Education Teacher
Welcome! My name is Derek Colburn, and I am excited to be a part of the staff at Compass Elementary! I received my degree in physical education from Missouri Western State University in 2005 and have served in education ever since. During that time, I also received my Master's Degree in 2008 from William Woods University. I have a passion for physical education and enjoy helping students learn through movement. I look forward to working with your student and sharing with them my heart for physical activity and sports.
Outside of school I enjoy spending time with my family. I have been married to my wife (Lyndsey) for over 14 years, we have two sons (Camden and Carter). My wife is a teacher in the North Platte School District. We enjoy traveling, being active together, and cheering on the Jayhawks, Chiefs, Boston Celtics, and the Royals!
