District Home

Morris, Derek

It has been my honor and blessing to be added to the CPMA Administrative team and staff this year. This is my 27th year in the San Diego Unified School District. I started as an instructional assistant and worked up through teaching assistant, special education assistant, instructional behavioral technician, intern teacher, 1996 Teacher of the Year, Mentor Teacher and finally Site Administrator.

My love of the Arts has been life long as my family has been engaged in music, theatre and dance for years. My father ran several night clubs in Europe “The Topper Club, The Plantation Club and the Trans Billets” as well as “The Empire Club” in New York City. My siblings are veterans of opera, theatre, television and film. My desire for CPMA is to assist in bringing resources and opportunity to our campus, students and their families and the community while guaranteeing that kids are safe and getting obtaining the highest quality of education that can obtain. I appreciate the opportunity and welcome that I have received from the entire CPMA community.
