Derek Wahlstrom - Social Studies

    I am very happy to begin my 6th year of teaching at Verrado HS. This is my 22nd year of teaching. I earned my Bachelor's Degree from Friends University in Social Science Education and Masters Degree from Concordia University (Irvine) in Coaching and Athletic Administration. I have taught too many courses to list, but most of my classroom experience has been teaching Government, Economics, US History, and World History.

    I am blessed to have been married to my wife Jeanette for 24 years and we have three children, Alyssa, Jacob, and Shaun. I really enjoy spending my "free time" watching them play sports, playing video and board games together, or watching a movie at home. When we get the opportunity to spend some time outside the Valley, we enjoy going to the beach in San Diego, visiting Disneyland, or even enjoying the cool pines of Flagstaff.

    This semester I will be teaching an Advanced Weight Training Class, a Personal Development Class, and an Advanced PE Class. I look forward to meeting all of you and learning right along with you.
