Welcome From Mr. Flickinger
I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and earned two degrees. I obtained a Bachelor Degree in Communications Media with a concentration in Journalism. I also graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Education in the Department of Health and Human Services. I did my student teaching in the Gateway Area School District.
My teaching career began as a long-term substitute at Gateway High School upon my graduation in December. The following summer I was lucky enough to be hired at my alma mater here at Derry Area. This was special for me not only because I graduated here, but because I was able to step in for Mr. Giotto, who was a well respected teacher and my football coach. I taught for my first twelve years at the High School in both Health and Physical Education. The past three years I have spent at the Middle School teaching P.E. Both experiences have been extremely rewarding. I have also coached both football and baseball here at Derry for the past 21 years.
