To engage and communicate effectively with members of our district
About Derek Barrios
Welcome to the Faulkton Area Schools District Superintendent Blog! I am very excited to be a part of the Faulkton community. I am honored to have been selected to serve as the Superintendent of Schools in Faulkton and I look forward to building a relationship with you that will help continue the success of our children.
I was born and raised in eastern South Dakota for the most part. I graduated from high school in Brookings, SD , and attended Dakota State University, where I played football while obtaining my Biology for Education degree. My teaching career began in Kimball, SD as a science teacher in 2008. I was there for one year before heading to Arlington, SD as science teacher. During my four years in Arlington I obtained my Masters of Education from South Dakota State University. In 2013 I accepted the 7-12 Principal position in Custer, SD. During my three years there I began working on my Educational Specialist degree through the University of South Dakota.
It is my desire to showcase our wonderful students and staff of the Faulkton Area Schools District with this blog. I will discuss issues and provide information that I hope the staff, parents, students and community members of Faulkton Area Schools District will find beneficial.
Do not hesitate to contact me with suggestions or questions.
