Dr. Derrick Savage

My family and I moved from Bucks County, PA, which is 25 miles Northeast of Philadelphia, PA, in the summer of 2018.  Prior to moving, I began my career as an educator working with Exceptional Children and then transitioned to a role as a classroom Social Studies Teacher. I graduated from Holy Family University in 2007 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary & Special Education and obtained my Master's Degree in Educational Administration from Capella University in 2014.  In March 2023, I completed my PhD in Educational Psychology, also from Capella University. In addition to teaching, I have also coached football, baseball, basketball, and track & field, in addition to officiating basketball in both Pennsylvania and North Carolina. At White Oak, I have the pleasure of serving as the Social Studies Department Chair, the Associate Head Coach and Offensive Coordinator for the Varsity Football Program, and as the Head Coach for Men's Winter and Spring Track & Field. I live in Richlands with my wife, two children, and our three dogs.
