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 of 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 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 two dogs.
