Mr. Derek Feather
Welcome to Fleming Schools!!! I am Derek Feather. My wife, Dallas, and I have 4 beautiful children and a new son-in-law: Ashleigh (Brandon), Kaitlyn, Braylen, and Emma.
I grew up in Sterling, CO and graduated from Sterling High School in 1989. I attended Northeastern Junior College in Sterling, CO and then transferred to the University of Northern Colorado in Greeley, CO. I earned my Bachelor of Science Degree in Secondary Education with an emphasis in Mathematics in 1993. I spent one year as a substitute teacher in Greeley and Sterling. In 1994, I accepted a 7th grade teaching position with Sterling Middle School. I taught 7th grade mathematics for four years and then taught 8th grade mathematics for another four years. While at SMS, I also coached middle school football and high school golf, basketball, and baseball. In 2002, I accepted a teaching position at Sterling High School. I taught at SHS for 13 years, teaching Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2, as well as concurrent enrollment courses in college algebra and statistics. While at SHS, I continued to coach basketball and baseball. I was the head baseball coach at SHS in 2002 and 2005-2009. In 2008 I earned my Master of Science Degree in Education with an emphasis in Educational Leadership from Walden University. In 2015, I accepted the high school mathematics position here at Fleming High School. While at Fleming, I have served as the junior high boys' basketball coach for four seasons (2017-2021) and the high school baseball assistant for two seasons (2017-18). I am entering my second year as the high school boys' basketball coach.
My interests include watching my children with their activities and just being outdoors. I became interested in hiking a few years ago and have hiked two 14ers [Mt. Sherman (2019) and Quandary Peak (2020)] and the Manitou Incline (2021)!!
