McDonald Elementary | 2nd Grade
My name is Stephanie Derickson. I am originally from North Platte and graduated from North Platte High School. I received my Associate’s degree from Mid-Plains Community College. I then received my Bachelor’s degree from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with an Elementary Education major.
Family is an important part of my life. My parents live here in North Platte. I have a twin sister, Rebecca and she works at Walgreens. I also have a little brother, Jacob. He is in the United State Air Force, stationed in Alaska.
This is my first year teaching. I am a second grade teacher at McDonald Elementary. I have always wanted to be a teacher and am so thankful to be teaching in the district. I believe that every child can learn and succeed. Students need high expectations and a teacher to believe in them so that they can reach their full potential. I encourage my students every day to work hard and do their best. I am blessed to have such wonderful students and teach at a great school.
