Coordinators Appreciation Week: Derek Frey

Union is celebrating Coordinators Appreciation Week. 

Special spotlight: Union visits with Community Schools Coordinator Derek Frey of Ellen Ochoa Elementary

How long have you been a coordinator?

This is my 3rd year as a Community Schools Coordinator.

How did you get into the role of a Community School Coordinator?
As a teacher, I realized there were often layers of needs that students were not having met and that could not be met within the classroom - prerequisites to the brain being capable of the psychological and cognitive process of learning - as coordinators, we strive to provide those layers of support so students become capable of learning and striving to their potential.

What makes you proud to be a Community School Coordinator?

I am proud to be a Community School Coordinator because I believe a village (school, family, and community) raises stronger children than any school or family can alone.

What is your favorite thing about being a Community School Coordinator?

One of my favorite parts of being a Community School Coordinator is helping youth see themselves as members of a greater community of people rooting for them, and that they too have an essential role in creating the community they hope to live within.
